4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: This kind of falls under the same category as drug use in the sense that I probably don't have the best idea of what's actually going on. The policies themselves are pretty strict, although smoking is allowed outside of buildings, but as for enforcement I have no idea. I'll go with the idea that no news is good news and say they don't have to enforce a lot of misconduct and/or they do a really good job enforcing it, but that could just be my obliviousness talking.

Local Atmosphere: Lindsey Wilson is in Columbia Kentucky, which is pretty much just like where I grew up - very small-town, with not a lot to do but everyone is very friendly. There are some fast food places and a Wal-Mart, but not a lot of other choices. There are a lot of farms and countryside around though.

College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't like drugs and alcohol. I have been kind of a loner all of my life too. I had heard about parties where people get drunk and other stuff, but I had never really thought about them actually happening until some of my old friends from high school got in trouble for going to one. I am really oblivious to these kinds of things. I would probably pick the option that says drugs aren't used on campus, but I'm not sure. I know of one kid who had to do community service because they caught alcohol in his room, and I've heard other people talk about going to a party or drinking or drugs or what-not, but I honestly have no clue how much it actually happens. I wish it didn't. I can't even keep up with who is dating who, let alone who is doing what outside of school. So I can't in good conscience give an answer to this because I have, like, no experience with it.

Health & Safety: I don't know a lot about this topic. I'm not sure how much "partying" or whatever goes on, and I don't really have much awareness of any crimes happening. Someone got robbed one time, a couple of people have had some of their things disappear, and I heard a rumor that a lot of people get raped in the lower parking lot where there's not much light, but other than that I have no idea. I don't know how much I believe the rumor though. The only thing I know about campus security is they help me when I'm locked out of my room and they give out parking tickets occasionally. I feel really safe on campus. Like, leave my stuff somewhere and it will be there when I come back safe. I don't mind walking around by myself either, although I never really minded that off campus either.

Campus Housing: I live in McCandless Dormitory, which I like. It has pretty small rooms, but I don't need much space in the room. There are community bathrooms, which was weird for me at first. McCandless was kind of thrown together because they needed more housing quickly, so the walls are really thin and sound carries really easy. I really like living in McCandless though. It's closer to my classes than some of the other dorms, it's at the top of the hill so I don't have to climb the hill every day, and it is literally right beside the bandroom and the Health and Wellness Center. The things I've mentioned are things I heard other people say; I don't really see much wrong with my dorm. I can't say much in the way of amenities and ease of the housing process. I live close to campus, so I do laundry and such at home every weekend, and I don't participate in the housing lottery, I just sign up for McCandless again. I like the people here and the social atmosphere is pretty great. The cost is a little rough though.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't know a lot about the athletics department - the closest I come to sports is marching band - but I see a lot of student athletes in my classes. Everyone seems to really support them, and we have a lot of excellent facilities for sports. There is also a Health and Wellness Center that is open to all of the students that I feel is really top notch.
