Diversity: Campus isn't really diverse at all. As much as the school promotes diversity, it seems like everyone is in one way or another the same. It depends on how involved you get and who you hangout with

Local Atmosphere: Bristol is a cute little town with great places to get takeout. Colt state park is a nice place to go for a run down by the water or to study outside. There are a lot of stores to go to for convenience needs. Newport is only 30 minutes away for more good restaurants and fun. Middletown and Portsmouth offer a lot of stores as well. It's a good idea to get off campus when you can, even for something as simple as getting milkshakes, because campus itself can get boring and repetitive. Go do something new off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a psychology major, there is a good variety of classes to take. However, there isn't a huge selection for the many different ways a student can go with psychology. It's tough to take all the good interesting classes here because they may not be offered when you want them, or they get filled up too quickly. Psych students have to do an internship but the career makes it easier to find one that fits your interests.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet

Athletics: For a division three school, the varsity teams are decently good. The facilities are great. The turf field is relatively new. We have soccer and lacrosse for men and women, and field hockey for women. There is a baseball and softball team, cross country, track and field, tennis for men and women. Swimming and diving for men and women. Women's and mens volleyball, wrestling, and men's and women's basketball. The main gym is one of the nicer of most D3 schools. The gym for working out has two levels which is nice and spacious with a lot of equipment.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are better than others. For freshmen, Cedar is a freshman only dorm and it reflects the idea of what most college dorms are like. It's a long hallway dorm with many people, for socialization which is great to meet people. Willow is more of a townhouse style living which is great for meeting fewer people but having stronger connections with them. Some people like Maple, others don't. It's not the best or ideal living situation for any upperclassmen. The cost of dorms is what you expect them to be. They dorms are relatively clean and safe.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is a great way to have more freedom and a sense of independence and responsibility. Off campus dorms are easy to get: a sophomore only dorm across the bridge and an upperclassman dorm just a mile away. The room selection process done through the school is relatively easy although availability is sometimes slim. The cost of rooming in an off campus dorm is a little more expensive than on campus doe because of the added cost of kitchen appliances and the freedom to control heat and air conditioning. The off campus dorms have resident assistants and cores just like on campus which ensures safety but also some more independence.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There could be more places to study.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's not bad. Food is good, people are great, places to go. The academics are sub-par though.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls here are STUNNING. About 80% of the girls here are super beautiful. Some are stuck up since most primarily come from rich backgrounds, but there's a good handful of wife material. The guys here aren't too decent too. There's a lot of cuties but watch out for one's who play around with "daddy's money" .... they're wussies.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking here is a pain in the butt. J-lot is where most end up parking but the only problem is that it's all the way on the north side of campus. Willow parking isn't too bad but good luck trying to find a spot past 5:00

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Yea kids smoke weed in the butt huts and down by the beach but if you don't want to be near it then you don't have to. Drinking is common on Friday & Saturday nights but then again what college isn't like that? Party scene here is pretty good if you throw down right ;)

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek Life .... it's depressing.
