Summer Hot, Everything Else RAINY – Little Rock usually has really hot summers and as soon as it starts to cool off lots of storms come through. Winter doesn't get that cold except for a short while.

The surrounding area is so so for college students under 21. Although our campus is near the downtown area it can be a dangerous walk to that area , and once you arrive there isn't much to do but stare at the river. Everything else to do is usually a decent drive away.

Our network is very slow when many students use it. We just recently updated the campus to where the students have wi-fi in the residency halls. Besides that our network is ok.

It's Not up to Par – I do believe that Philander has handful of close-minded students. My first year I was known as the "white girl" or the "weird chick" because of my taste in music and the way I was dressed. I feel like, there needs to be more diversity so that the classroom discussions challenge people. And so people can have a more cultural experience. I have many hispanic friends, and here on campus I hear a lot about "dem mexicans" that is no where near the truth. So I think we could be a bit more diverse.

Off Campus? I wasn't even aware that there was off campus housing. I know of a few students who claim to have contacted people on their own to work out a housing plan. But I didn't actually know that we offered off campus housing.

Guys & Girls:
Relationship Wise – The main focus for a lot of students: hooking up. Even those who were focused on their studies made it very clear that they at least wanted one fling while they were at college. Understandable I suppose, though I remained focused on studies due to a legit long distance relationship. I feel like the main hype was hooking up and if I were single I may have been swept into that crowd as well.

I feel if the department was more organize, the school would be in better conditions to provide more options for the student body.. It would provide a greater since of pride.
Although it has gotten better as years have gone by, yet still needs work.

Philander is located near the downtown area so there are plenty food places and things to see in walking distance. There are fast food restaurants, bars, grills, and plenty other things on the way downtown. There is always new food to try.

It Exist Sometime – Sometimes, when transportation is really needed, the security will take you. It's best to ride the bus or find a friend with a car.

GOOD Diverse – Philander is very diverse. The staff is diverse and there are a lot of different people from all over the world. It's like no other HBCU I know of.

You can never really predict the weather in Little Rock, Arkansas. Most of the time it is sunny, but every now and then a streak of strange weather will pop up. It's kind of crazy.

Needs Improvement – Don't really have green spaces or a student hang-out area. Very conservative library and studying area.

Ok I Guess – I do not own a vehicle so i do not know much. I do know that there is little parking made available to guests.

OK but Not Much Variety or Options – The cafeteria at school is better now than last year but it is a work in progress and the fact that the dorms are not equipped with stoves make other options such as cooking your meal meal impossible.

Wheather on Philander Campus – Its very cool but can get really hot most days on campus, but class does not hardly get canceled unless its a snow day or a workshop for faculty. Classes are not that far away from the dorms, so there is no excuse for you to be late for class.Also when the weather is nice, everybody is outside on the wall having a good time.

Philander has tremendously improve since i been here for the past two years. They provide you with help for your studies, all faculty and staff encourage you to strive for the best. I find this college to be unique because of the different organization that are held and finish with success. No one here on this campus never gives up. Everyday when i walk up and down the halls of Philander Smith College i see all students and staff striving for excellence and pride.

Alcohol Visibility – The alcohol visibility is some what big on our campus. There have been a few cases on our campus with drinking issues leading them to the hospital and causing a few scene on campus.

Athletics at the school and it would be probably due to either the lack of participation of the students or the size of the school. There are students there who are talented but do not participate and the little that do stretch themselves between several clubs and groups. This sometimes leads to coaches focusing on a main group, the boy's basketball team for example.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
