4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love being apart of SRU. It's a great community. I don't really have any complaints other than the fact that it is expensive to go to school there and I wish there were more scholarship opportunities for students who are financially struggling like I am.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: If you follow the rules you will not have a problem

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Only a few places that gets boring quickly.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am only a sophomore but I know of a few upperclassmen who have amazing job opportunities and internships that they loved being a part of.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had this opportunity yet.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't partake in Greek life so I don't have a biased view on it but I do know that there is Greek week and it's very fun and a pretty big event

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I haven't been to the bars so I don't really have an insight

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: I feel like there can be more work put into the arts or study areas

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Not crazy about the dining options

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I think a majority of the off campus housing is very convenient and well kept.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The people on campus are very friendly and easy to talk to.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many of the student athletes support each other by attending games as well as friends of the athletes on the teams but I feel as if the athletes game schedules are not advertised enough for the students on campus

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It depends on the major. Some are absolutely wonderful, some aren't. Like any university.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Great networking opportunities, not sure students take full advantage of what is offered. Degrees are great at preparing you for your career.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: On campus alcohol is not permitted, and frowned upon. Rules are upheld on campus.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I get minimal financial aid, and the office is not helpful

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Choose from old style dorms or the new style. The new can even have half kitcehnettes. The rooms are beyond nice, mini fridges, private bathrooms. A DREAM. On campus apartments available too.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Theres a womens center for support, and the health center is great about having a group called PEER educators to help with sex ed and they provide condoms, knowledge and support.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Theres not many places to go, so when you find something fun, its packed. Whether that be the bar (one and only) or a good party.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: I love the small town of slippery rock. Local businesses and small atmosphere, its nice. the outlets being fifteen minutes away are nice too.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Theres a huge variety. Its all about searching to find your niche. Many students into partying because theres not much to do. But if youre not a partyer, theres tons of people who don't. And lots of commuters.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greeks and non greeks are two separate entities. But those who are in it love it, and those who aren't love not being apart of it

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of people complain, but the local food is great. And if that's not good enough, there butler and grove city close by with more options .There should be more late night food though, one downfall.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are many diversity groups on campus, including LGBTQ groups. SRU is about building bridges and everyone being as one, getting people involved.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Sports are popular to attend and play. It is exciting to get involved, highly recommended.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Picking a college is a tough decision and nobody expects you to have your whole life charted out upon high school graduation. Fortunately, Slippery Rock can help you find yourself by exposing you to a laundry list of opportunities and organizations. Sure, students gripe about Weisenfluh food, the miserable weather, and the Ticket Nazi, but SRU students are in it together. Here, you are not treated as a number, but, in many cases, as a family member. Most students agree that the people are what make this place. You will not only make lifelong friendships and connections with fellow students but with professors and local townspeople, as well. It is highly difficult to find a school where professors sincerely care about you, and not just about their research and side projects.

In recent years, Slippery Rock has been trying to overcome the party school stigma that has overshadowed its sophisticated academic programs. Known for many programs, including education, physical therapy, and parks and recreational management, Slippery Rock offers high quality at a low price. Remember that a well-rounded education does not have to translate into millions of dollars in student debt. It is highly recommended that before you commit yourself to any school, visit the campus and see if it feels right. Though some schools look terrific on paper, you may be disappointed upon arrival. Slippery Rock offers something for everyone, and it’s highly recommended that you get involved and make the most of your time here. At Slippery Rock, we play hard, we work hard, and most agree that they would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Go Rock!
