Student Body: there is no diversity at all they are either rednecks or tree hugging hippies that smoke a lot of weed

Facilities: This school is okay. It is a beautiful campus, and the people there are very nice. But it is extremely isolated so if you are a city person it is not a place for you. Also the school is not very diverse so this is a problem for me. It is a really small school as well. This is a benefit because classes are small and you get more personal attention by professors. But campus safety are assholes. They will come up with any lame excuse to search your room and say they have probable cause. They can go through your things and can confiscate your things. You have almost absolutely no privacy. It is unconstitutional.

Campus Resources: The library and fitness center are amazing. There seems to be plenty of activities on campus, and all the buildings (except the residence halls) are gorgeous. I like the student center, too.

Tuition & Financial Aid: From what I've heard, the education is worth the money. I got plenty of financial aid that was really helpful, and some things that I didn't even know about. The financial aid people are very nice and helpful.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Classes are pretty flexible, the only problem is that as a freshman you get assigned classes and don't have much say in what you get. My AP credits transferred, but I'm still working on transferring dual-enrollment credits.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I don't really like online courses because I don't learn well that way. There are 3 different websites we have to use, which gets really confusing, although the teacher tries to help make things clear.

1 College Junior

Student Body: I've been here a week and haven't made any friends yet. I'm super homesick and am ready to quit. The only thing keeping me here is the fact that I live 9 1/2 hours away and my parents want me to try to make it through the semester. People seem to just look right through me. There is some diversity, and they don't discriminate for anything. But there aren't many Christians here. Everyone parties, which is good if that's what you like.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The food is the worst part. You pay 15 bucks each time you enter the dining hall and you get served your own feces. The selection is god awful and whenever they have leftovers they just throw it on pizza the next day. Its high school food all over again.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There is a old s****y gym that no one uses, and a decent but small new gym. The only problem is that they close at 10 and if campus closes because of snow, they just shut down every building on campus so your just left sitting in your dorm/

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: No one has anything to do at night other than watching netflix. Around 6 p.m. everyone is using the wireless so it basically doesnt work. Computer issues are a constant at this school.

1 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education I'm getting I could have received from a monkey astronaut. My money was wasted here. Its like they intentionally raise the tuition so they can "claim" they give out a lot of financial aid. You wouldnt need financial aid if the prices were reasonable.

College Sophomore

Career Services: how do you ask an undergrad about a schools post-grad services?
