4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My classes thus far have all been great. I've learned so much this past year. My instructors were all great at what they did and had so much knowledge to share in their subject. There are many classes to take and most are fairly small so you can usually talk to and get to know your instructor.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school has many resources for obtaining jobs and internships between semesters and after graduation. They also keep in touch with alumni and attempt to retrieve donations to fund school programs. Career center services are somewhat helpful but as with most job applications these days most of the work is done online.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It's hard to give a rating for all of the schools officers because it ranges from some being very strict unfriendly and rude who wish only to write you up for the smallest of infractions (my friend got written up for throwing his ID card). On the other hand some are so lenient they won't even bother writing you up for bigger things like drugs/alcohol, they typically try to have you keep it out of site and out of mind. What they don't see doesn't affect them. My CA though would actively seek out violators and at one point we even caught him listening in at our door. It really depends on who you get though.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's great. Their are many houses all around the campus. The houses tend to be very beautiful and landlords are typically very nice and helpful as are most people in arcata. They aren't usually very far from campus and if they are there is usually a bus route that goes through your area and directly to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls are cute fun and smart. Most are pretty open minded and aren't typically snobby or rude. Pretty much everyone is friendly and happy to meet new people and new friends.
