3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: In my opinion, greeks change after they cross over. They start to feel like they have more power. This is not everyone, but the majority of them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The city my school is in is slow. There isn't a lot of fun attractions around. You have to make your own fun.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The transportation system is okay. There are buses that take students to malls.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing process is at random but sometimes the school says that there is no housing when there are a few rooms left for the students applying for housing.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My major which is Mass Communications, is a great major. I learn a lot of life skills and alumni speakers come into class to speak about their experiences.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are cool. The workload is a lot but it is well worth it

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at the school was good but the only thing holding me back from completely staying and attending school is the amount of tuition I'm paying. I'm an out of state student and its tough paying out of pocket each semester. Every semester I find a way to get it paid but I cannot continue doing this each semester.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is a program called Centennial Scholars program and its a brotherhood program to help students on campus with anything as far as understanding bills on their account and also advice.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The wireless availability is weak.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The only off campus restaurant is Burger King and everyone gets tired of eating that.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The resident assistants are pretty strict with visitors but other than that, they are cool.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It seems like everyone on campus either smokes or drinks. Most students smoke or have smoked before.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Where I live is great because I have a lot of space and I'm right in the middle of everything. In the middle of the cafe, library, classes, and so on. Getting into the newer dorms would be bad because they are so far away from everything. The cost is good and what would be expected. The housing process is easy. Just apply and they will do the rest. Make sure you look up the dorms on the website before you just pick the rooms.

Greek Life: Greek life is great and I love it! Anybody is welcomed to come to their parties they always try to invite everybody to their parties. I am going to join. I love when people cross over we have probates and it is so fun and everybody is so hype.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The majors are great. If you are at the school I'm pretty sure it's because they have your major. I haven't had an internship but I do plan to have one by the end of my sophomore year.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm only going into my second year of college but so far it has been good, Challenging at times but what isn't. I'm still trying to figure out my career goals. My concern about finding a job in my field would be if there will be jobs open for me ny time I finish my degree.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The fast food restaurants around campus are very convenient and cost effective. I never tried to get a student discount but I'm sure they won't give us a student discount.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied but because of my moms income I didn't receive any financial aid but the loan process was good.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I really don't have input because I live on campus and don't plan on leaving until maybe my senior year or after graduation. I do know that they have a bus that takes people to campus.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's very dangerous and ghetto on the outside of the campus. There is the mall and movies and places to go though.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Sometimes the internet doesn't always work and the wifi can be down for some hours or days. The printing is great because it's free and abailable for anybody. Every dorm has their own computer lab and printers which is great for people without computers. The internet speed is okay. It's not horrible nor is it the best speeds.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The school shuttle is convenient but the transportation around town can be sometimes difficult because as college students wee don't have a lot of money for a taxis and at times the city bus is a little dangerous so people don't want to get on it.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of people do drugs on campus but it's not really noticeable. They really crack down on those who are drinking or doing drugs so many keep what they do on the low. It's a dry campus they do not play when it comes to that.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife is okay. There's not much partying on campus and the campus is a dry campus so not much goes on at night on campus. Most parties are held by others at the University. It's usually held at their apartment or at a club, not on campus.
