3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It was an average experience. It was not bad but I couldn't say that it was spectacular.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was contacted by the Financial Aid department to do my fasfa. Once complete, they send an "alright you're good" email and thats the last i heard of it.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: This is not a college town and the facility is a satellite location is a business district. There are bars throughout town, of course, but not geared toward students, not on any public transportation lines, and most charge covers to see local bands. There are lots of festivals throughout the year, but those are mostly geared toward families.

Athletics: There is no sports team, to my knowledge, but again we are a satellite facility.

3 College Senior

Majors: They only have the Business Administration major.

3 College Senior

Majors: The classes are very small, which is great for learning. Instructors are easily accessible and knowledgeable in their fields.

Off-Campus Housing: Cedar Rapids is a lovely community with a vibrant culture. There are so many different areas to choose from and getting around is a breeze-if you have a car. It's not exactly a pedestrian city, but it is a Blue Zones community and really taking strides in becoming more pedestrian friendly. There are lots of bikes trails and lanes, if you bike, and lots of activities going on downtown and its suburbs.

Overall Experience: Classes are one night a week, once a week, for three hours. The program is geared to working, non-traditional students, so a lot of the usual amenities really wouldn't get used as much as a traditional campus. Still, it would be nice to have reliable WIFI and a coffee cart or at least a vending machine.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a masters degree, and after checking with the human resources officers at work (one of the largest employers in my county), unless it is an online, for profit school or an ivy league school, they really do not weigh one school more heavily than the next. So I chose this school based on the times available for classes and cost... It is a great option for those working the traditional 8 to 5 shift.

College Senior

Campus Dining: There is no campus dining option, not even a vending machine. Our only dining option would be the water fountain.

1 College Senior

Facilities: Classrooms have ONE outlet available for all students who may need to plug in laptops. The Wifi for the building is so unreliable that many students rent space on others' hot spots. The "cafeteria" is a fridge next to a bar sink. There is no library. There are two study rooms, but the rooms' lights run on motion sensors, so after sitting and reading for 15 minutes the lights turn off on you. Granted, it is a satellite location, but there are basic amenities they advertise and turn out to be a real joke. They have a long way to go to be taken seriously as a campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: We have two complete opposite dining halls on campus. The main dining hall is one of the oldest buildings on campus, and quite frankly reminds most students of a dungeon. On the other part of campus we have a 1.5 year old dining hall that is super clean and state of the art. The original cafeteria is buffett style which is great, but the food quality isn't that great. Also, it is a little expensive for not very good food. THe heritage center on the other hand has great food, but it is priced about the same as the original cafeteria except it isn't a buffet. Overall the food on campus is just ok.

4 College Junior

Diversity: With so many of our students coming from overseas I think that our campus is very accepting of the diversity. I personally had never been exposed to so many different ethnicities and economic backgrounds until I had gotten to college, but it was easy to adapt since everyone else was too. When talking to friends at other schools they often talk about how different the foreigners are at their school, and how they don't associate with them. I think of that as not only being very rude but also very different from our school as it is the opposite here.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It seems like there are many options for off-campus living.

Transportation: Campus is small, so walking or shuttle is convenient. City busses are reasonably easy to use and taxi fair is reasonable given the size of the town.

Local Atmosphere: Dubuque is a beautiful town with alot of lovely scenery and things to do outdoors. It's small enough to be friendly, but large enough to accommodate.

Facilities: I enjoy the campus, but it reminds me a lot of high school. A lot of tight groups. Everyone only hangs out in their subjective sports groups.

Weather: It is in northern Iowa so the weathers can be pretty bad, but the staff always is shoveling and the campus is pretty small, making it easy to stay warm.

Health & Safety: I had a problem a little bit off campus one night, but other than that the on campus security is pretty good.

Campus Housing: Housing at the University is right in between okay and great, so I'd say "good" generally speaking. The dorms aren't as spacious as they should be from a personal standpoint. I live in a quad and I can say that with all of our stuff in the room it can be a little cramped. They do provide us with a fridge, desk area, bed, drawers and closet. Though on the downside, like I previously stated it's very expensive.

Health & Safety: The campus security is really good here at the University of Dubuque. Granted, you don't hear much about anything really happening here, but you have to keep in mind that the security plays a part of that. I feel safe on campus and I also know that there are girls that say the same thing. I don't feel threatened in any way shape or form when I am on campus.

Nightlife: With Dubuque being a small city/place, it's not really a very big party place or crazy place you'd hear about. It's about average some nights are really good and fun, while other nights you plan on going on and there's not much to do. It all depends on the night.
