1 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food is terrible except visit days. Seriously, we look forward to those days because there is finally decent food. Also, rarely they bring out frozen pizzas and that's the best thing to happen. Desserts are pretty good though.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Honestly, fill out the FAFSA, research private loans, and declare your major as soon as possible. Search for outside grants.

3 College Junior

Facilities: We have a beautiful lake. And lots of places to play games and such. The food is horrible, don't be fooled by visit days.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Just like anywhere, there is a wide variety. But my best friends and my boyfriend I met during orientation, and I met plenty more friends through classes and activities.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are few classes that are complete lecture classes, and in all classes, you can always talk to the teacher with any questions during or after class. If you're having trouble, you can meet with the teacher or get a free peer tutor. And class sizes are really nice and small.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most students who graduate have a job within a year, and career services are always willing to meet with you (just make an appointment).

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Mequon, where we're located, hates us. But we're pretty close to Milwaukee, so that's really nice.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We are very well taken care of and I rarely feel unsafe.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The worst thing is probably the fact that they promise more housing than they have available.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Honestly, I spend most of my nights hanging out with my friends and doing homework or watching tv, maybe going to a restaurant. I'm underage, and I wouldn't go clubbing even if I wasn't.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most people live on campus which is much easier because we can get around using tunnels and never really have to go outside. That is so great in the winter.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live on campus because housing is very good and those who commute come from home

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many international students on campus but not a lot of religious diversity because I go to a Christian university. Because the majority of us are Christians, we have similar political views as well.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I do not live on campus. I have been their a few times and every thing seems to go status quo.

College Sophomore

Athletics: people seem to care, but could take it or leave it.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I think some classes have an extreme work load and this seems to vary by who your Professor is. The registration process was awesome! Very helpful people and caring.

College Sophomore

Academics: not sure as I am only about half way through.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Locals are great and friendly. Very easy to fit in.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is mostly chains. Their are a few her or their but you will need to drive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I have eaten their as a late night option a time or two as I find it is easier to study without my 6 kids running around.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have tried many different scholarships. I have found that heir are not many people willing to give a 49 year old much help. This has slowed down the process of my ability to take classes, as I need to pay as I go.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am off campus.. online student.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus with my family.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I really have no idea about this Greek life

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Professors seem to take a great interest in helping you to succeed. Some give out constructive criticisms kind of straight to the point others seem to reply back to you in a helpful manner. I had one Professor that made me feel like quitting school because she was so harsh, but then I sucked it up and by the end of the course, I was understanding and applying her techniques. Following her lead made my next class easier and more enjoyable. I now thank her for giving it to me straight.

CUW is a great place to connect with international students. There are students from lots of places, including China, Russia, Korea, and Nigeria. They are very interested in learning English, as well as sharing their experiences in America. A con of the University is that it can be described as a "suitcase college," where most students go home on the weekends and holidays. There is not much to do for a student who does not have family close by or a car to travel to recreational activities.

At times, some students say they feel stifled when attending this University because so many students have the same background and are not very accepting of other viewpoints. The professors are helpful and nice, so many don't mind attending this school as a commuter in a field of study such as lay ministry or education.
