4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not been to the health center.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are a good bit of things to do in Starkville for fun. There are plenty of fraternity parties, a few bars, and even concerts sometimes.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with my program and i would most definitely do it over again. My career goals are to graduate with my bachelor degree in biological sciences. Then get into medical school to become an ophthalmologist. I do not have any concerns about finding a job in my field because you are more likely to get a job with any degree.

Parking: Get there early if you have an issue waiting five minutes for a spot to open, otherwise there is no problem. You can park anywhere after 5:00pm.

Transportation: There is not much transportation outside of the school provided buses, but they run fairly efficiently. The GTR airport is close for flying long distance, but they charge a pretty good fee for being in a remote location.

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a house off campus where I rent very reasonably and I compete with many other people who do the same. There is a very limited range as far as traditional college housing, but there are many opportunities to live in houses and other better living options.

Off-Campus Housing: The cost is much better than on-campus, but it is still pretty expensive unless you are in a position to live on the other side of town.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's pretty good. While I feel fairly safe alone on campus, I grew up around a large city with a high homicide rate, so anything short of that is fine with me, though my friends have concerns for my safety. I had a stalker last year but school officials and police helped deal with that quickly. But the lack of health care options, especially mental health care is appalling. Their on-site psychiatrist left and the only feasible off campus option is very judgmental and will not listen to your concerns. He has actually made me very sick by not listening to me before and it made me do poorly in classes. The health center will do unnecessary tests just to charge you and then will not issue class excuses even if you are supposed to be on bed rest.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's nice to be able to wear sandals in December, this coming from someone who grew up in a northern state.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you are having physical/mental illness problems, the scholarship committee is likely to work with you.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Please don't get a dorm unless you have no other options. It's a huge waste of money for such small living areas, you have to pay a lot to do laundry, you don't have access to sufficient kitchen supplies to cook for yourself so you are forced to eat bad campus food, parking is horrible, and the roommate selection process has left me with horrible roommates that have been bad for my mental and physical health twice.

Local Atmosphere: It is a small town. While there aren't many jobs available in the area, it is a great friendly place.

3 College Freshman

Computers: If you are in a technology-based major, like engineering or programming or whatnot, a computer is REQUIRED. You may be able to get by without one in other majors, but you're better off getting one. Though the labs are not usually full up and do have very good technology available, they are not open 24/7 except during finals. The printing cost can get expensive and you should probably get your own cheap laser printer because of that.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Most greeks don't do anything for the community. Sure they'll do "service events", but they're mostly for PR and don't actually help anyone but themselves. There are a few greek honor societies/fraternities that are good, but the traditional greek houses exclude many potentially great members because they don't fit their pre-conceived notion of what their members should be like. All greeks are very conventionally attractive and most are promiscuous.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police are friendly and will gladly help students in need. One time it was literally freezing outside and my friend locked herself out of her car. Some police got us to a safe and warm place while we waited for triple A to come unlock her car.
