5 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are many ways to get around campus. There are now buses that take students around campus, and then they have shuttles that you can call to take you to specific places.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Lately, this semester there has been quite a bit of snow and it has caused classes and campus business to have to cancel or close down. Other than that it has been great.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I absolutely enjoy my major of Kinesiology. The classes are pretty easy as long as I do the work and put in the study time. I especially enjoy all the PE classes I am having to take.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I really enjoy it. If I could I would most definitely do it all over again. I plan on being a physical therapists after I graduate from college. I am concerned that once I graduate from college it will be hard for me to find a job somewhere as a Physical Therapist.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't received many scholarships so I cannot really give my opinion. It's hard finding scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many choices so there is not really any problems finding somewhere to eat if on campus dining is closed.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many people choose to stay off campus after their freshman year, and it is pretty easy for them to find housing off campus due to the on-campus advertising done by some of the housing areas.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Everything runs smoothly as long as the student does what they have to do on time.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The alcohol and drug use on campus is not really noticeable. Most people do it away from campus so it's not really a problem. It's rare that there will be any kinds of problems with drugs on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone takes part in all school sports and intramurals.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is very strict and it keeps everything in order.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are spacious, and most of the RAs are super nice. Some of the activities they try to organize are dumb, but some, like the hot chocolate bar, are pretty cool. The study rooms in Blazer are so convenient, especially the eighth floor ones with whiteboards.

Weather: Sunny days are great, and there are plenty of sidewalks to use to avoid mud on rainy ones.

5 College Freshman

Computers: There are computers everywhere, but most of your homework will be online. Probably don't want to make the trek to Club Sterne every time you need to do OWL or Web Assign, plus the library closes super early on Friday and Saturday.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The new bus system is nice, and basically everything you need is within walking distance anyway. Parking is hell, so maybe you don't need a car that much.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You can get away with anything if you aren't stupid about it. Just don't stumble into Blazer or Camp and throw up all over the floor.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The football team sucks, but the soccer, softball, basketball, and various other teams do not. Win or lose, the games are awesome. Go Blazers!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments are about the same price as the dorms, and you don't have to deal with checking people in and out all the time. University Place is within walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The neuroscience program is pretty intense, but it's definitely worth it. There's a built in chemistry minor, so quite a few of us choose to add a second major in chemistry, usually biochem.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks are everywhere. In the library, the rec center, any community service, and, every weekend, at Zydeco.

4 College Freshman

Majors: If I could do it all over again, I would still be right here in the neuroscience program. Our program directors really care about our success, even if they don't always show it in the best way. You're sure to get into research as soon as you want.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The neuroscience major has requirements above and beyond acceptance to the school. At least a 30 on the ACT, and you have to interview with Dr. McFarland so he can see how passionate you are about the program.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone is so different, and it's really eye opening.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't pay sports that much attention

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: not too strict on things that matter
