3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security is pretty good and they are there to help. There isn't a student health center.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Many choices and you can double major, there are a some options to switch things up.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I dont' want to write anything here so I'm just going until the character limit.

College Sophomore

Athletics: There aren't any sports. I go to an art school…...

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are very small. There is one building you can live in on campus, freshman get first dibs. There is a meal plan, but the food isn't great. It's relatively clean, but still wear shower shoes..

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of different places. You name it and there is probably somewhere nearby that serves what you want.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Winter is cold, but manageable, summer is very hot. Spring and fall are very nice, not to much rain usually.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, 75/25. It can be fairly slow to connect.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a lot of people who come from families who pay for everything for them, but then there are a lot who work very hard to make ends meet. The racial diversity is low, but the city is fairly diverse. Political beliefs are mostly liberal, i think.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Right near the city and an upscale shopping center, there is always something to do.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The green is small, but we are a small private school, so that is understandable. The students don't have a place to hang out other than the green. The events are inconvenient and boring.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: We are in between two museums, there is a lot of work study opportunity, there are a lot of available internships and the faculty are very helpful in helping you get one.

College Sophomore

Transportation: It's up to you to find a way to school.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: There are two tiny parking lots that have 20 spaces total, and there isn't enough street parking for the rest of the school. You better get to class 20 minutes early because you won't find a parking spot of you don't.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a double major so the work load is a little more than usual, but still very manageable if you can keep on top of your work.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There is a very diverse range of courses to take and the majority of the faculty are amazing.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't have time for that.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity regarding to ethnicity is scarce. There are way more American individuals than African Americans, Asian, Latino, etc. I wish there were a variety of us instead.

3 College Freshman

Majors: You get a basic application and most freshmen who don't live in KC already have to live in the dorms, so there's filling out that application too. Both are done online, largely. Pretty simple if you know your stuff. Just have general information and if you get confused, you can always ask your admissions counselor for help and they're pretty quick to guide you to whomever you need to talk to and to answer your questions.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I am not in my intended major right now due to the requirement of first getting through Foundations Year, but right now, it's alright. Lots of work demanded of you. Very challenging stuff. Sometimes very hard and other times may feel easier. Depends on the teacher and the classes. Just manage your time and you'll be fine.

5 College Freshman

Academics: You're given a lot of work, but it's to discipline you. You can't come here and party all the time. You'll fail of course. Time management is key here, especially in the foundations year. Professors are great, curriculum is well-planned and extensive. Registration, for me at least, was pretty easy to get through.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I feel safe, mostly. There has been issues with drugs in the dorms before, but the security caught on quickly and resolved the issue quietly. It's just when I get off campus that I feel the need to be very wary due to persistent theft and an almost-kidnapping that happened extremely close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Weather can be really nice but when winter's around, it can be horridly cold, icy and it's sometimes scary (at least for me) to walk around during those times, but usually, the campus is closed when it's too bad to get out.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is reasonable, although there is a range so you will get what you are willing to pay for. Unless you have a car, it isn't really convenient, however. The Plaza is the best place if you're looking for a bite to eat.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school has some pretty strict policies about just about everything, but most of the people who care about them are in their offices all day. Campus security tries there best to keep everything in order, but there usually aren't any problems ad you get to know them since it is such a small school.
