4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: again, still have not spent enough time to rate

College Junior

Health & Safety: I have not spent enough time to efficiently evaluate.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: havent really spent enough time to rate the locality

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life isn't big at my school. They are more about community involvement than anything else.

4 College Junior

Academics: I have loved almost every professor I have had here. I receive a great quality education for the price that I pay. Registering for class is easy if you are able to set up an appointment with your advisor, which can be difficult with only a few days to do so. The library is an awesome spot for student aid. I work as a peer mentor in the Center for Academic Excellence in the library, and I am the person my fellow students can turn to for just about anything.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love everything about my major. My classes are fantastic as well as my professors. There is so much room for growth, both personal and educationally.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I receive no help from my parents, yet the school thinks that they contribute a minimum of $18,000 every year. The Financial Aid office is a stressful place where I never leave happy or on a good note. The employees are miserable and unhelpful.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are emergency call boxes within sight at all points of walking on campus and the CP respond quickly.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There's a lot to do, but not really too much for a poor college student.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are lots of things to do downtown, the trouble is getting there. There is a small shuttle van but it isn't very reliable

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is an expensive area to live and some of the off-campus options for housing are not safe, especially if there is a late night at the library.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Since becoming a university, many positive changes and renovations have occurred.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are people from all different backgrounds that come here and that is what makes it so interesting to live on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: There are a few options for dining on campus. There are to-go places, called OutTakes which have good hours. The best part about the outtakes in the library is that it is open late for studying.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a variety of people on campus, which contributes to our diverse student body.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: SSU is very strict about visitation and guests in dorm buildings, but that is for our own safety. I think this helps with noise and party complaints.

2 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: With all the campus police you think this wouldn't happen.

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Their housing is the pits. They did build 2 new dorms but the old ones are not fit to live in.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Almost the same as in high school.

2 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The school is constantly noisy, no parking especially for commuter students. They keep putting buildings up, taking away student parking and not creating any new parking.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I am not into sports

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: This schools financial aid office is not well run. Your either on hold for extremely long amounts of time and then there's no one there that can answer your question and if you leave a message it takes days to a week to get a return call.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Average some have good locations near school but some of the neighborhoods are not good.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: What I would expect at any college

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Do not eat of campus as the food is terrible.
