3 College Junior

Nightlife: For a small liberal arts school, your only option on campus are fraternities or house parties. Or if you're 21, there are a handful of bars downtown.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I don't mind walking alone on campus at night, but I feel more comfortable with a group. There's no gates or security entrance to get on campus, so anyone could wonder around.

4 College Junior

Majors: As a liberal arts school, I am very happy with the majors offered, especially since I am an Archaeology major.

College Junior

Majors: I have yet to participate in an internship.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: To remain on campus, we now have more options to choose from. UE has recently built townhouses, and upperclassmen can also live in houses (which are very dated), apartments, or a suite-style dorm.

3 College Junior

Weather: Being in the Midwest, the weather can be up and down. We do have all four seasons, which is nice, but fall and spring don't last too long.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I'm not the biggest fan of Evansville, especially since the east side is predominantly concrete and no grass. I am not that impressed with the local population here, some people can be really rude.

3 College Junior

Computers: Wireless network can be unreliable at times, but there are plenty of computers in the library. In addition, I am in the honors program and we get free printing in our own honors lounge.

3 College Junior

Athletics: School spirit isn't the greatest, especially for the basketball teams. Soccer is a popular event, but we don't have football at our university.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Being a small, liberal arts university, Greek life is a huge aspect when it comes to parties and philanthropy events. I am personally not affiliated, but I have close friends that are Greek, and it's not an issue between our friendship.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off-campus. I lived in a dorm for my freshman and sophomore year, then village housing my junior year. I will be living in one of the new townhouses for my senior year.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was let down by my scholarship; I had been told I would get an academic scholarship as well as a music scholarship. When I was expecting a good $20,000 scholarship, I received 15 and their explanation was that I do not get two separate scholarships. This school is very expensive and I do not feel I am being given the help I need.

Campus Housing: Living in the dorm halls sort of sucks. They have many issues because most of the rooms are old. I had to move into a new room before 1st semester ended due to roof leaks; they called it "fourth floor problems" and never fixed it. It was very aggravating and they never even offered a discount or money towards it or anything. There are some serious physical problems with all the halls regarding the roofs but they refuse to fix them. The space in the rooms is quite nice, but I think it is very unfortunate that to have the nicest rooms you have to be in the honors program or house in the all woman or all men halls. The co-ed ones are small and their furniture is very bulky. I wish life was more social int he dorm halls; I do not talk to anyone on my floor.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: From my knowledge not many horrible events happen on campus. Off campus is another story, but that business usually stays off-campus. I have never felt threatened walking alone at night or in the day. I would never venture off campus if there was not sufficient sunlight though.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The school will do shuttle buses for local basketball games and some off-campus events, but majority of the time you are left to fend for yourself. If you have a car, good for you. If not, like me, you have to bum rides all the time and end up just staying on campus because you feel bad for always bumming.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I as a freshman have not had much exposure to off-campus living. I know there are campus owned apartments and villages that many upperclassman reside in, but I do not know of their quality or cost.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Many students use drugs, specifically smoking. I would say 80% of the camps drinks as well. For the 20% of us who do not, things can get a bit awkward and you can feel really left out. But once you find friends that don't do any of that life is fantastic. I have only been offered, never forced, to drink or smoke. I have been ridiculed a few times for it, but their opinions do not matter to me.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of restaurants, mostly just types of fast food though. You also need a car to get to any of them which sucks. Also, majority close at 9. What kind of college area has no food places open at 11 or 12?

3 College Freshman

Computers: Most of the computers are outdated and still running IE when most people now use Google Chrome and Firefox. They run great though and serve their purpose---a way for us to directly print.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: This campus, from my one year of experience, seems very good about accepting others. We have countless people from different countries, making it pretty diverse and interesting. It is easy to learn about other cultures here.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Personally, for a girl who does not drink or smoke, the parties are fun for about an hour. Maybe an hour and a half if I am people watching. Most weekends I spend alone or with the friends I recently made playing games, watching movies, and doing our own things.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: From my experience, games of any kind are not widely advertised or discussed. Therefore, not many students attend any. I wish there was more school spirit, honestly.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It often depends on the RA or the professor you are coming in contact with. Some give warnings too often while others go straight for strict discipline.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life here, because it is a small campus, is very different than at a state school. Though it often times feels like if you opt not to go greek you are left behind

3 College Junior

Scholarships: All I can say is be poor and you will have to deal with a huge hassle to get money but eventually you get aid. If you get married or can't receive financial aid because of your income, well that's an even bigger ordeal to deal with and good luck with your debt.
