4 College Freshman

Parking: My only complaints are the cost of the permit and the size of the lots around the busiest buildings (the Library and University Center)

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It shows people a new side to themselves and other people that they have probably never seen before, it would be nice to have easier ways of switching rooms/residence halls. I liked that there was a profile built to make sure that roommates are compatible, unfortunately, when someone has to move out or someone new is added to the room it can cause an inconvenience and many awkward situations.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I drive to the university everyday, the only super expensive part is buying a parking permit, and then the gas to get there and back home (of course). It would be nice to have cheaper permits, students are already paying so much to go there each year. (Maybe consider including it for free to all full-time students)

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I bought my own house far from campus so I would not have to deal with rental agreements and the stress that comes with them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are always new places popping up around town, although the cost can be a little high sometimes and we need more late night places. There is currently only one restaurant in town that is open 24/7.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are only two places, outside of parties, for underage people to go at night for dancing/club scene. One of which is very dirty, another one with better maintenance would be great to have in this area. There are several cab companies in the area and SafeRide to help students travel across campus at night so that they are safe, which is super awesome.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am indifferent about Greek Life. I do not like to see underage drinking or excessive drinking, but many sororities and fraternities do volunteer work around the community, which makes up for it.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There are many professors that just cannot teach, it would be useful to either get new professors or require the current ones to take a couple courses on education. Also, there are many professors that assign so much homework that it seems that they believe they are the only class that their students should be concerned about, which is very hard on the students when they have 5+ classes a semester.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: While living on campus, I liked having certain hours set for me and the other residents. It meant getting more quality time to study and sleep when I needed it. Unfortunately it is hard to be strict about attendance, which I would like to improve.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I have only applied for Centralis, otherwise I do not fall under the category of financial need and cannot apply for many scholarships or loans.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is clear that there is a presence on campus, but as a woman, I do not feel safe walking around campus after dark, even with friends. Maybe it would be good to have a safety course for students living/working on campus to take so that they know what to do in case of emergency. Just a small briefing during orientation doesn't help. Maybe consider offering self defense classes too.

4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off-campus yet but have signed a lease

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of chain restaurants but a few good, local, restaurants and bars downtown that I prefer to go to. Really good sushi place and a few good coffee shops.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I got a scholarship when I entered just for having a good high school GPA and SAT score but that was the only one I got and it was not all that much money ($3,000 a year).

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Plenty of people smoke weed but it does't really feel like you are being pressured all the time to do it too; for me at least. Drinking is a big thing though so you might feel a bit left out if you don't go out to the bars or parties every week.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Not a whole lot off campus to do in the town. There are bars and some shops and one club but mostly people just go to bars or party at people's houses. If you like a small town downtown with local shops and restaurants then you'll like the down town area but it is quite small.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Liked almost all of my professors but I had mostly all Art classes so those professors are usually always awesome if you like art and take the class seriously.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Fair diversity, I suppose but not great.
