2 College Junior

Diversity: We are a small white school so while there are a number of openly lgbt students there really are very few students and even fewer faculty of color. I do not think I've seen a single head-scarf or yarmulke but that is not to say we are not accepting, just not terribly diverse. It's Northern New England, after all and the college population is fairly well representative of the community population in this town of < 27,000 2 hours from the nearest metropolitan city.

Campus Strictness: I think academic honesty is taken very seriously by faculty and administration.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I just think Keene has great places to eat but I can never afford it, I have a family to feed.

College Junior

Health & Safety: I really don't know other than the few times I've had to use or interact with security they were very nice and completely professional. I don't know how a traditional student would answer this.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I am a long time resident so I see what these crooks charge and I'm appalled. If the apartments were nice that's one thing but the only places in walking distance that accept students are generally slum-lords and they ask $550 to $700 per month per student in a small converted place with 4 or 5 students sharing one bathroom and one kitchen. If you have really good references and a sizable surety there is plenty of clean, reasonably priced housing in the town but not for students who, let's face it, haven't the most glowing record.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: I imagine they are generally very nice and very clean (my 17 year old is dating one of them, with whom I am well pleased). Because of our small NE town atmosphere there is less emphasis on being "fashionable" and that's good.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They made it very easy for me and work well with NH Vocational Rehab, from whom I receive a small annual grant.

4 College Junior

Facilities: It's a beautiful small campus in a lovely town. Cold though but I'm used to it.

College Junior

Facilities: Again, I am 52 years old and don't participate.

Majors: I already answered this once. My program is great and there are plenty of jobs to be had in the field.

College Junior

Majors: I will be student teaching but not interning.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I am a non traditional student so my meals are awesome because I make all of them myself (too bad I'm so stinking poor though, would be nice to put more fresh veggies on the table).

3 College Junior

Academics: It is an excellent teacher's college but just so so in the physical sciences, not for lack of trying but because the departments are very small. It's a good springboard if you want to do postgraduate work.

3 College Junior

Academics: My Major is Earth and Space w/ 7-12 (secondary) minor. We are a very small group of 11 and exist under the geology department which has 3 PhD's and one BS adjunct. I'm like that there are so few of us and that we have all of the geology majors there to work with. The workload is fairly heavy and quite detailed but the professors are easy to reach and more than willing to help outside of class time. Also, the 3 professors come from 3 different specializations in each rock category so we get very in-depth instruction. The adjunct does not teach any of the required courses and this is good since she's not terribly well educated or motivated to learn more.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Its a fun social environment but be aware of RA's and the police will only get you in trouble if you're acting dumb and deserve it.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have received a few scholarships and financial aid, I just wish this world wasn't so occupied with giving financial aid to black, latin, and other people of race other than white. Why do we have to place our ethnic background on financial aid information? We are all people, we breath the same way, eat the same way, and go to the bathroom the same way, so why can't we be treated the same way? This is discriminating against people by selecting people who are not white to receive the scholarship. While the white females who have excellent GPA's will receive nothing. So if you ask me about scholarships and financial aid, I will tell you, this entire United States education is warped and we should start looking at other countries whose education by the way is completely free.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Keene is a joke, they aren't even real Greek names and there is one Fraternity that will be found located on other campuses, that is the only legit one. Other than that they are all fake orange people who only care about themselves and pay for people to be their friends. Don't go Greek.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is a fun environment for any college student! There are so many activities and organizations that the students can get involved in, which really brings the community together. Keene is in the heart of Keene, New Hampshire and the locals and the local food is the best part about this school! If you're looking for a fun school with amazing sports then Keene State College is the place for you!

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are always open computers and computer labs. The wireless is also very accessible and usually very fast.

Health & Safety: Campus security is everywhere and if you ever need help for anything, or a ride to anywhere on campus, and to most places around town, they are there to serve you.

Campus Housing: Housing is usually very clean. The dorms vary on costs so it is very easy to find affordable living. Many off campus housing options are available as well. However the sophomore housing lottery process is a bit frustrating.
