3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Since it is a private college, they will be stingy on how much money they will give out. I had to apply for a loan because I just could not afford it without the loan.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been a few instances where creepers were in campus and campus safety took action and banished the person from the premises. The nurse is really caring too.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams are really supported by the community. There is a weight room that anyone can use.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are plenty of parking spaces around the school.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Even though it is a pretty small town with roughly 10,000 people, there are plenty of things to do around town. You can eat out, go to the movies, go bowling, or even take a boat out into the river.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I really do not know on this one. We do not have public transportation or any of that, so basically, if you do not have a vehicle, you are not going anywhere, unless you get a ride from your friends or something. I mean, you can walk if you want to, or you can even check a bicycle out from the school.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: It is basically a wet campus in a dry county. Due to the high level of academics that we have to deal with, people turn up here. It does not matter if the nearest liquor store is about 30-45 minutes away, we WILL have fun!

3 College Freshman

Weather: I mean, it is Arkansas. The weather here is really unpredictable. The day before, you are wearing short then the next day, you will be wrapped in two layers of coats.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Just attending the school, you will get a discount from the fast food chains around town, and it is really close. You probably could even walk to them. Also, there is a great variety from Popeye's to Hardee's to Taco Bell.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: In the actual cafeteria, you just do not know if the food is going to be good or not. Sometimes, it is good, and when it is bad, you don't get enough options. However, downstairs in the bistro, you can order hamburgers, philicheesesteaks, smoothies, and even get a pint of ice cream, and it is great. It is kind of expensive however. Then you can also scan your ID around the the fastfood chains and restaurants around town.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It is kind of diverse. There are only about 20 or so African- Americans, and the majority of them are athletes. And, there are Asian, Hispanic, German, and English folks here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The academics is pretty challenging, but my school has review session just in case you are needing help. The food could be better, but there are plenty of places to eat around town. Social life is alright since it is kind of a small college with around 600 people, you get tired of seeing the same people everyday. There so much to do: hiking, sand volleyball, tennis, etc. There is also Greek life that you can venture into, and you get to meet the most amazing people that will have your back no matter what. There are also a ton of clubs that you join.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It's not a big part of student life.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are labs in two out of the three buildings and printers in the dorms. WiFi is offered in every building, sometimes there are technical difficulties. You could survive with out a lap top but it's much easier with one of your own.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not really looked into off campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I have not made it very far into my major but I am confident that I will enjoy it.

4 College Freshman

Academics: For how small the school is they offer a lot of different classes and many majors and minors.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There a lot of the fast food chains and some unique restaraunts

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is a lot of different students here but most are easy to get a long with and are willing to help or give advice if you need it.

College Freshman

Transportation: You need a car to get off campus but shuttles are not provided.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is kind of expensive but the rooms are a decent size. The school does a good job at making the freshman feel welcom.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is little or no campus crime and the campus security is easy to get a hold of if need be.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There aren't very many black people on campus. The sports teams account for the majority of black people. I see that as a very big problem on campus. The international students usually hang out together. I wish there were more diversity on campus. All but one of my friends are white. I don't know of any muslims on campus. Most people are of the same economic status. There aren't many extremely poor students. There are very few hispanics. I want to see more diversity on campus. I want to walk into a class and see people from every race. People of the same sexual orientation usually hang out together. Political beliefs are a nonissue on campus. Everyone gets along usually with regard to politics.
