3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The engineering and business buildings are in great condition while the others are lackluster.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Because this campus started as a two year college some of the original buildings are terrible. Some of the walkways are brick and it makes for a very uneven surface. The library is very nice.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The University takes great pride in its facilities, and everything seems relatively up to date. The library, fitness center, residence halls, and academic buildings are all taken care of nicely, and by doing so, the University maintains a nice aesthetic on campus, which in turn provides a nice learning environment. For example, the Cooper Fountain is surrounded by flowers and plants and is a wonderful area to study. The library, which may intimidate some students, is a big part of the University. In fact, many professors and instructors make using the library and its resources a requirement for certain assignments. The library is not the newest building on campus, but it has "face-lifts" from time to time.

The residence halls are also major facilities for some students on campus. East Hall is at least 20 years old, and upkeep becomes necessary to maintain a level of comfort for those who reside on campus. To accommodate more students, another residence hall is being built and will be available for occupation by the 2011 fall semester. The fitness center is one of the newer buildings on campus, and students who like to work out rave about the up-to-date equipment. Students looking to stay active can do so many things: lift weights, play basketball, go for a run, play racquetball, dance, or run on the treadmill—all in one building. Overall, the facilities on campus are generally taken care of and promote a great learning environment.
