3 College Junior

Computers: Could have cleaner computers because they are always busy and crowded dirty sticky keys. Classroom technology could improve but overall service is great.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Walking to and from campus is really dim even on campus near the library is scary at night.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity on campus is prevalent. Programs like EOP and RAMP work towards creating diversity for all.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Students working at the front desk are not that helpful. Contradictory to what the advisors say.

3 College Junior

Transportation: No transportation for students on campus aside from disability resources.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There could be more food places open late. The hours in time are poor because they are run by local businesses. Where's the In N Out?

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I did not care for my CA, she was too lenient and not around much.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: There is a good level of strictness at school.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: The UPD are on top of everything.

5 College Junior

Majors: Psychology is by far the best. The teachers are very professional and approachable.

College Junior

Majors: I have not had an internship

4 College Junior

Facilities: RAMP is great that I work for I wish I had a mentor too. Financial aid student workers are not that helpful

College Junior

Greek Life: I have no idea about the greek life except that they table in the quad.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are tons of computers on campus, both mac and pc. Depending on time of day and which computer lab you go to it may be hard to snag one.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I really like the atmosphere in Arcata. Most are concerned with maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the town really embodies. There are great festivals that are held at the plaza and a killer farmers market every saturday. There are no chain stores in Arcata so you have to drive down to Eureka to hit the mall, target and any other big name stores we've got.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of apartments right down the road from campus which makes walking and biking both extremely viable options. I personally have never taken the buses here but from what others have said, they are reliable and run during school hours. Rent is pretty affordable off campus in comparison to what you would pay for a dorm and also you will get way more space!

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are only 4 bars in town and they are all right next to each other. Some places have great bands that come through and jam but most play the Arcata Theater Lounge. Coming from Los Angeles, there's significantly less to do here but the change of pace is nice.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I feel that living off campus is very convenient for students

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and in the town
