Campus Strictness: The campus safety here is really just looking out for our best interests and when we came here as freshman we signed a contract that we would not drink or do drugs while we are in school. Once summer comes around you are off contract and can do what you want but until summer and Christmas roll around you are not supposed to do those things. Granted people do anyways, but if you get caught that is your own fault. The campus security guys are really doing what they are supposed to do and I can't hold that against even if they give me a parking ticket even though I didn't know I wasn't supposed to park in a certain area.

Off-Campus Dining: Being so close to Downtown Grand Rapids, we have so many different options around here from fast food to nice dining restaurants. Also a lot of the places that are around our school are willing to give student discounts which is so unbelievably nice of them! It makes it so convenient because you can get a good size meal for like $5.

Transportation: There is an airport not too far from our campus that student's can use who live out of state. Or there is the bus that has a stop literally right down the street from our campus. Most people rely on their cars though or people who have cars to take them places that aren't on our campus due to the fact that our campus is not very big to begin with.

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus throughout my time here at Cornerstone, but from some of the stories I have heard the process of applying to live off campus through Cornerstone is horrendous, but once you get through that students have been able to find great deals on apartments and houses.

Campus Housing: Like any school your dorms have been around for quite some time, with the special times when new buildings are put up or buildings are renovated. As far as I know only one building has been renovated and one new building has gone up since I have been here. It really shows in some of the buildings,including the one I live in where the doors are falling off their hinges, the carpets are stained, and the counter tops and cabinets look like they are from the 70's, and the bathroom ceiling falls into the room below it. Granted they are planning on renovating this building during the summer, but I believe they waited too long. As far as the social atmosphere everyone is always open to each other wanting to create new friendships.

Computers: Honestly, I cannot complain too much about anything technology wise around this campus. When we come in as freshman we all get our own computers, granted it's paid for in our tuition but probably is a bit cheaper. As far as printing on campus goes as of right now it doesn't cost students anything to print however much they want, but then when you have that students are printing random stuff and then wasting paper when they never come to pick it out of the printer. I seriously believe that this school has probably killed the United States worth of trees. Of course you always have issues with wireless when you have so many students trying to use the internet on their computers, ipods, iphones, etc. There is so much technology using the routers that it sometimes gets overloaded and crashes, but that rarely ever happens.

Weather: We are only about 20 minutes away from Lake Michigan, so we have really bad winters. This year alone we accumulated so much snow it was a tad ridiculous! Other than the snow we do not really have that terrible of weather. I mean last year we had that time when it rained every day, and the Grand River flooded in Downtown and life on campus was muddy. Thank goodness for rain boots!

College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life at our campus, so therefore I do not really have anything to rate or compare to.

Athletics: When it comes to the Varsity Men's sports, everyone is always there cheering them on. I can't say that it is the same thing for the Varsity Women's sports unfortunately. I wish there was more support for them because they put in just as much time and effort as the men do. I also which that our school promoted the games more because half of the time I don't even know when there is a game unless I look online at the schedule. I would love to attend more games, but I never know when things are happening. As far as how are teams are, I believe that they are great. They push to succeed in their schoolwork and in athletics, but also take time out to fill in leadership roles throughout the campus. I think that definitely shows how committed they are to being leaders of the school.

Drug Safety: If people use drugs, it is not noticeable. Very few people have ever been caught for using drugs. So I can only assume that few people are using drugs.
