College Freshman

College Freshman

Computers: Not sure because I have my own laptop.

College Freshman

Transportation: I have my own vehicle, so I dont know how it is for other people to get around.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: New Haven is not the best city to live in, there is criminal activity; however, if you stick with the right group of people and stay out of trouble than it is fine.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: New Haven is a very diverse city with people from all different backgrounds.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I will not/have not lived on campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Every school that I have applied to does not want to give me any financial aid based on my academics and my parents make "too much" for me to get aid any other way, even though I am the one paying for my school and they are not

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have not started my degree program yet, since I will be transferring to SCSU in the fall. My career goals is to work with animals for the rest of my life in zoos or aquariums with my zoology degree and study primates for my anthropology degree.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Definitely not hard to get into the Biology program

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Plenty of night clubs in New Haven

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I have lived in this area my entire life, and there is always something that you can do. There are plenty of clubs in New Haven and Yale has a museum not far from SCSU.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The access to drugs and alcohol is the same as everywhere else; you have to know the right people in order to obtain anything.

College Junior

Academics: I don't pay too much attention to the people at school other than the one's who actually teach me.

Diversity: We have all type of races and ethnicity on campus and it doesn't bother anyone. Spiritually, the majority I see are Christians and atheists, and I see a fair amount of Muslims around, not too many, but definitely noticeable. But again, all is very well accepted, and I've never held my tongue about Jesus Christ even in class, but I've never been stuck in an angry argument. In fact I've had very enjoyable arguments about God with atheists without any hard feelings.

Transportation: They are more fervently working during the winter with campus shuttles. There's two shuttles working and they are frequently used, and they are free.

Greek Life: I never even heard of there being a Greek community as a thing. People are people, and the Southern community is accepting of ALL races.

Drug Safety: I've encountered two students personally who have openly done marijuana, but past that I don't know the situation. Plenty of people smoke outside however which can be an annoyance, especially when they are walking in front of you. Considering I go on campus, go to class, and sometimes visit the dorms, I don't see much drug use at all.

Majors: I got in seamlessly, however I know students complain A LOT about needing to resubmit their forms multiple times before they are actually shown as in their major.

My advice, be fully prepared to apply for you major more than once, and don't be bothered by it, just keep doing it until it works. Considering there is a problem in the first place. Remember, I got in the first try.

Majors: I love and respect the human performance faculty so much. However being in the program for now means I get some benefits dependent on the classes I'm taking. For example, some classes will allow you to get skin fold measurements or hydrostatic weighing for free. Also its just fun being in the program A. because you get amazing classes opened up to you, and B. because at least the graduate students get to work in the human performance lab which is nice.

Campus Strictness: I don't know about everything, but I do know if I want to visit a friend in a dorm, I need to be both signed in and signed out. The campus police are likable. Attendance depends on what professor you have. Some departments however are extremely strict on the issue. Honoring code, is decent. Exercise Science doesn't allow hats so we don't wear hats, and we're expected to behave in a positive manner as we are teaching people how to improve their lives, we need our lives in order as well.

Nightlife: I'm don't party so I honestly have no idea even slightly.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Its sad that I don't know more because I am an exercise science major, but I rarely watch sports. From what I've seen in our athletic center, Moore's Field House is an amazing athletic center. I've worked in their gym and they use older equipment, but it works well. I've seen the athletes train and they look highly, highly motivated, and our runners move like lightning.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: From what I hear, people really don't complain about financial aid too much. When I was working with Doctor Lunn he was very upfront about financial aid, what it covered and when so that if I did use financial aid, I would be completely aware of what was going on.
