Off-Campus Housing: I have not yet lived off campus, but am looking to do so next semester.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: It would be nice if they were more economical, out of state tuition is ridiculous.

College Student

Majors: I am just taking prerequisites right now.

3 College Student

Nightlife: I try to stay away

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It would be nice if it were cheaper.

3 College Student

Scholarships: Apply as early as January to avoid a delay.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: I wish there was a huge mall close by. There is a mall, but completely isolated, just a few stores.

3 College Student

Athletics: Our varsity teams are trash. I don't play intramural sports but a lot of people talk about it.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: I rarely even see police around and when I do they're just standing there bored. Nothing bad really happens for them to even be there.

2 College Student

Nightlife: It's very boring. There's always a lot of people out but there's never anything happening. Whenever there's a party going on it's never really fun. It's just loud music playing and people standing around outside

3 College Student

Greek Life: I really don't pay attention to Greek life. There are some that throw it in your face to act like they're better than others, but that's a rarity

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The showers are too small. The rooms are pretty spacious for first year students, but once you get used to it, it gets really annoying and jam packed

3 College Student

Drug Safety: Not really that bad. The teachers are very helpful and nice. Not as fun as people told me it would be

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Carbondale, Illinois is a college town. This means that the town thrives on the students. That being said, Carbondale caters to the students. There are always things to do whether they are indoor activities, or outdoor adventures. There are both campus police and Carbondale police that create a safe environment.

Off-Campus Dining: Multicultural restaurants are located within walking distance to campus. The town has a very good selection of restaurants.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: I enjoy when they have the concerts at the parks. Most of the time it is not to crazy and I can take my kids if I want. But most of the nightlife are at the Copper Dragon, Pinch Penny or the other bars on the strip near campus.
