4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to choose from, and you can find any different kind of food that you would wish for. Ethnic cuisine in Evansville is very prevalent, and for the portions you get, the cost is decent. Of course you can find fancy, expensive restaurants if that is what you are looking for, but most of the options are very affordable. There are certain places that offer student discounts, and it tends to be the places where students are seen most often.

Local Atmosphere: The people in Evansville are very friendly, and they are fairly open to diversity for being a small city. There isn't much in the way of clubs or a party scene, but there are plenty of restaurants and enough bars if you can find your way around the city. It is hard to go places without a vehicle or a friend who has one. There is one decent mall in the city, which is the place most people go to shop. The safety is for the most part great, and I feel completely safe walking to nearby places. Students are very welcome throughout the city in general.

Athletics: I never really enjoyed the athletic scene. Fan support is usually great, especially if the game is against a rival team. School spirit is prevalent, but it isn't the largest part of campus. The athletic facilities are great, which sometimes overshadows some of the other things that need renovated or updated on campus.

Campus Strictness: You come into the school knowing the dry campus policy, so you really know what to expect. Administration is very strict on these rules, and you can get into a great amount of trouble if you are caught with alcohol or drugs on campus. However, there is no campus curfew, and although it is not allowed for a member of the opposite sex to sleep in your room, you can have them there for as long as you like - if it is not a restricted floor. Most of the time, academic policies are easy to follow. If you are absent for a class, just be sure to email your professor with plenty of notice, if possible. Also, if you must miss a test day, make sure that you have a good reason for it and have backing from the Dean. Basically, just be responsible adults and you will get along fine.

Campus Dining: It is very convenient to have the option of campus dining; however, many of the hours that they are open are not convenient, especially dinner time. They are open from 4:30-7 for dinner, which means if you have an evening class or if you work, the option to have dinner on campus is non-existent. If it is any day from Monday-Thursday, you have the option of the late night menu, but it includes mostly unhealthy options. Also, the hours are VERY limited throughout the weekend. Not everyone has the opportunity or the finances to be able to eat off-campus during the weekend and rely on the cafeteria service for all or most of their meals. I do have to admit, however, that during normal dining hours, there is always a great variety, and there are plenty of different options to try in the way of ethnic foods.

Academics: My favourite requirement of the program is the necessity to study abroad. I believe it brings much value to the major and allows you to live it. The workload is about average; there is more reading than actual work to do, and essays are the main source of the points. The curriculum is very broad and encompasses many different subjects, from political science to economics to the option of taking history classes, archaeology classes, or communications classes to add toward your major. The facilities are spectacular, as the classrooms are in the newest academic building on campus. It is also easy to add on majors and minors to supplement the International Studies degree.

Academics: Professors at UE are always there to help, and they truly care about how you are doing, both academically and personally. The registration process works very well, I feel. It is set up to allow the upperclassmen to have the opportunity to register for the classes that they need the most for graduation, so that they do not get left out of a class due to it being filled too quickly.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Overall, I feel like the health and safety on campus is both functional and quality for the size of the school. It can be slightly inconvenient due to the availability of the doctor as well as the hours the center is open. It can be difficult for a student with a full class load to visit the center without missing class to do so.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: If you want a cheap option, you must be willing to search further away from campus.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: School is located right in the heart of DC and therefore central to the bar/club scene with lots of happy hours and other free activities for a great social scenery and life.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: 1 yr accelerated Masters program with one year optional practical training option for international sudents, located right in the heart of Washington DC and accessible to alot of international development and non profit organizations working around the world. nI would choose my school again because of the hands-on approach to learning and practical experience of its faculty who have worked and served for many years in the international development sector across the globe.

Parking: The Graduate Institute's Washington D.C. branch is downtown with access to plenty of public transit with little to no need for use of a car.

Academics: I am in a low-residency program. While most classes are online, with discussion forum, videos, interactive presentations, etc, there is also a brief intensive on-campus session which really helps build rapport among cohort members.

Scholarships: I did not have to write any essays, however I was awarded 2K in scholarships for attending.

College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are expensive and not worth it. It is much cheaper to live off campus.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Small but Cute – The town has about 12,000 people, but is internationally focused.
