4 College Sophomore

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

4 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

Overall Experience: I love the University of Dubuque!! Great profs, small class sizes, beautiful campus

3 College Freshman

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.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: This school is very expensive. Very expensive. Also the school doesn't offer a lot of scholarships, so you'd have to find some outside money and scholarships to help and pay for the school.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I love people and experiencing new things and that's simply what college is all about. You get to meet people that have been raised on a farm to people who are army brats and have lived in multiple countries. It's really interesting to get to know what other people have been through and how they've been raised.

Academics: There's so much freedom with the way you are able to up your academics that I love it. They offer a lot of different studying abroad opportunities to many different places which interest me and I'm hoping to take advantage of in the future. The workload can get stressful, but it's also manageable depending on how you value your time. Whatever you put in is what you'll get out. Also, I really enjoy our library and it's a nice place to get things done honestly.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The campus has a strict dry campus policy that is followed. In retrospect college kids will be college kids, meaning that they find a way to get alcohol and party and have a good time as well. Though if you are found on campus drinking, you will be punished greatly just because of how the campus plans on maintaining a good image. In terms of drugs, I don't hear of many people really using them and/or getting busted just because it's not too much of an issue.

Transportation: Our campus is relatively small, so transportation isn't much of a big factor unless you really want to go off campus for various reasons. They do have a campus shuttle that runs if you live on the other side of campus in the upperclassmen dorms and it has a useful schedule if you truly need it. With me being a freshman, I don't really have use for the transportation provided. I manage just fine walking everywhere.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Living in the Midwest isn't exactly ideal weather for anyone, but I can say it's tolerable. Though we do have a cold winter, you begin to adapt to it over time and it only gets easier and better as the year moves on. As of right, spring is having some wonderful days and some days where Mother Nature just isn't so generous.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities provided to us collegiate athletes are really exceptional and appreciated by us. I notice that a lot of the people I know or see around campus are involved whether they work at our recreational center, play sports or compete in intramural sports. I do feel like school spirit and fan support can sometimes be better because you can look around and notice that not as many people attend certain events or occasions and they get overlooked. Overall though, I feel as if the school does a good job in getting people involved in athletics.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Dubuque police tend to be racist especially on black people

Facilities: That's all I can say...GOOOODDD!!!

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you don't have a car, you gonna have a hard time moving on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: You need one because the library closes at midnight, besides that...you don't really need one because they're always available.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is pretty big, but it benefits students who go to parties at other schools since UD is a dry campus :(

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never been there but I heard that it's not the best
