3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat, but there are not student discounts and because of the location, the food tends to be quite expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Personal safety isn't really a big problem on campus, but the officers are there when you need them.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is not safe and it is way too expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are a bunch of different buildings to go to and most of them are open to students at all times.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school is on a very busy part of town, so there are a variety of places to live but they tend to be a bit more expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a lot of different types of people around campus. Even though not all people accept LGBT students, some do.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's a very friendly place to attend college and it has a very good atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not participate in frats or sororities, but they are not treated any differently.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a bunch of outside of school actives to attend and they cost little to nothing to participate in.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They are pretty strict on the rules that are previously established, but other than that it's generally a very lenient environment and helpful to students.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I wish there were more options, but what they do have is pretty okay.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Most things are open to all students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The cost for a full time student can be a deterrent but there are numerous options within close proximity to campus that offer great amenities. The school, however, is not very helpful when it comes to shopping around and comparing on-campus with off-campus housing. The availability tends to be good because with so many students living off campus, there tends to be openings or leases available for the duration of the school year.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: There did not seem to be a lot of options for financial aid as I was only offered loans through my school. If aid is unavailable or lost, the school is not very helpful in assisting students find alternative ways to pay the cost of attending. There are also some individuals within the financial aid office who could stand to improve upon their customer service skills.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: I have a small sample to judge from since most majors are secluded within their own buildings but most students seem to dress for comfort and socialize within the program an average amount. Within the graduate program there is a high incidence of individuals who are married or have children, so when they are not attending class or studying, they tend to spend time at home.

Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There is not a health center on campus but the school does provide resources to be able to properly meet a students health needs within the community. The administration do place a great deal of focus on mental health and provide many resources for maintaining mental and emotional well being. Even as a student with evening classes, I have not felt cause to be concerned with my safety on campus. The parking lots and walkways are well lit and there are police call boxes available around campus that are easily accessible.

2 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Several professors that I have encountered seem to be very dependent on PowerPoint to "teach" classes. By that, I mean that they read their entire lecture (most times word for word) to the class for the duration of the class. As a literate adult, this gets very old, very quickly. It becomes hard to determine what professors deem important when entire chapters of the text book are reproduced on PowerPoint. Also, the majority of grades are determined through testing, good if you test well but not so much if you don't. There are a wide range of classes that should be interesting and challenging but the way the information is presented can leave much to be desired.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: There seems to be a bit of competitiveness between program members in that they constantly want to compare grades and there is a tendency for cliquing to occur though it is not completely exclusive. The workload is not bad if you prepare properly before and after class and stay on top of your reading.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: I have not had cause to encounter the campus police but I have had cause to be cited for improper parking and was not. Whether this was due to leniency or the fact that I was not discovered is indeterminable.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I chose not to live on campus because I was not keen on being required to have a roommate and the single apartments available were economy apartments and I could live within close proximity to the campus and have a full apartment for almost the same price or cheaper. Campus housing does hold several events to engage students that are not restricted to residents. The housing offered are apartments rather than dorms so dining plans are not available, to my knowledge, because full kitchens are provided.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There does not seem to be a huge role of Greek life on campus. They do hold certain events and colors/letters are displayed occasionally but there does not appear to be any stigma on not rushing or on rushing. Housing does not seem to be separate from regular student housing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of fast and cheap options that are open relatively late and are in close proximity to the school. It's late night, junk food heaven, but those looking for a healthier option may struggle.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is not very forthcoming aside from bars/clubs/casinos. There are a few movie theaters, museums, and parks but they can be a bit remote from campus. If you are interested in the night scene, it's a great place to be.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I have not hand an internship and I do not intend to have one because the length of my program is so short and its brevity requires a certain amount of work outside of classes.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: The application process was straight forward and concise. The requirements for the program were outlined clearly and so long as you met those criteria it was a simple matter to gain acceptance. There was not a lot of administrative support, however, and students must be very proactive in order gain any insight because little to none is forthcoming from the institution.
