4 College Senior

Majors: I haven't done an internship and don't plan on doing one either. I have heard good things about it but know nothing firsthand.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never had an issue that would involve campus security. I know I see them patrolling the parking lots looking to ticket those who park in the wrong spots.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Not too familiar with dining on campus. I know you can eat at the hospital cafeteria with a discount. There aren't too many food places really close so if you don't have a car plan on bringing your lunch or eating in the cafeteria.

4 College Senior

Computers: There are at least 3 computer labs which is nice. I have never been in one at a time that it was so crowded I couldn't get on. The only thing is that the teachers reserve the larger of the labs and we found that when we have the time reserved for class, there are a lot of other students in there. Not sure how they can make that better other than hanging huge signs on the door.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Public transport isn't the best in Springfield, and the college doesn't have anything (or need anything for north). A car is needed, most definitely. But South for clinicals does have the bus that will take you from the car lot to the door for those early mornings you don't want to walk all the way to the main entrance. Kinda nice.

1 College Junior

Majors: The nursing program at Cox is completely unorganized. The instructors can't get their coordination together. Yes, there are a few amazing instructors but those are few and far between. You learn to really cherish them because everything else--the disorganization, the lack of communication, the lack of instruction--makes you so frustrated you start to wonder why you chose this school in the first place.

Off-Campus Housing: There is no student housing, so everyone has to live in either an apartment or somewhere off campus. There's a lot of apartments--the cheapest aren't the best and the more expensive still have their issues. Renting a house, you have to be careful of the company you rent from. But if all of the stars align, you can find something. Maybe.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are no dorms on campus, and there has been no recent discussion about bringing them back, as at one time there had been off-campus housing options available with student aid provided at a discount by the school.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I haven't seen any drugs on campus, though drinking is a HIGHLY popular activity on weekends.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is only restaurants near my school. They give no student discounts, but the food is fairly cheap and very good.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: My college does a cohort program, that is to where it gives the same opportunities in big towns as for little towns. It does not leave anyone out. And, it is in a very good part of town and everyone is very nice.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are plenty of nice computers on campus that are easy to access, however once in a while they are booked for class testing which makes it hard to find a spot.

1 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our main campus is located in a very unsafe neighborhood, and since there is no "campus safety" to watch out over us, I can sometimes feel unsafe if I'm up near campus at night. I'm glad that I'm not usually there after dark!

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: There's not really a "police force," so to speak, but the strictness at the school is great. I think that by having social policies in place it makes the whole field of nursing better. What nurse has time to drink, do drugs, or make us all look stupid? We're drug tested randomly and when we have our initial sign-on, background screened, and I think it makes us all the upstanding nurses and professionals we are.

2 College Junior

Weather: The weather is awful in Springfield, which is called the epicenter of weather in the US. It is 101 degrees in the summer, 2 degrees in the winter, and we can go from having tornadoes one day to a blizzard the next. Class is rarely cancelled and with no dorms or student housing, driving to campus is nearly impossible in ice storms or snow drifts. The best thing, though, is that it changes in nearly the blink of an eye. It will be 65 and sunny tomorrow!

5 College Junior

Diversity: I am limited to nursing school but mostly women ranging in age from 20's to 60's a few men average age 30's mostly white

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: am not familiar with any campus housing but nursing school is very strict

College Junior

Nightlife: don't know, am a nursing student, have no nightlife
since no dorms for nursing students they create own nightlife with current friends

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I would not know about the nightlife at Cox College, I am a online student therefore, I do all my studies at home.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Haven't Heard Anything – I have not heard or been offered any alcohol or drugs during my time on campus. I have heard of others drinking but I have not been pressured into joining them.

College Junior

Greek Life: Cox's Main focus is on Health Science so they do not have sorotities or fraternities

3 College Junior

Computers: I would give the computers and labs a C+. It is fairly easy to have access to a computer but not as easy accessing printers. As far as wireless is concerned, I have not used it but I have not heard anything negative either. The network is fairly reliable but the speed is somewhat slow.
