2 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Not really anyone here that interests me too much. A lot of people are friendly, but not too much "eye-candy"

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus but a lot of people say that it's okay. Nothing really special about it. It can be hard finding a place sometimes too.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am pursuing a psychology degree and a computer science certificate. For the most part, I'm happy with both of them. However, I do wish there were more psych clubs. There's only one on campus and you have to have an extremely high GPA to get in.

3 College Junior

Majors: I would like to join the psychology club, however, I can't because my GPA isn't as high as they require. Kind of sucks, but it's okay.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is good. You will always see security guards walking around. They're friendly and a few have asked me how I'm doing.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school is very laid back

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife is really bad.There are house parties but everyone from the school goes to them and they get shut down very quickly. There is one club I know of that has student nights on Wednesdays.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is very diverse in sexuality, race/ethnicity, political, religion, and economic. But mostly everyone sticks to their own race. It's very much like cliques.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: No one really have school spirit except the Orientation leaders. Basketball and girls volleyball are the two biggest sports on campus, and even with that, the school spirit is horrible, at the game no one is really interested. We have no cheerleaders, mascot, or a school cheer. School spirit is very sad.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't have any problems with financial aid. But I know some student who've had difficulty with financial aid

2 College Freshman

Academics: I don't know I can't get any advisor to help me, or they give unhelpful answers that makes you feel like you're not confident in any decision making

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's safe on campus mainly because nothing happens on campus.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have fraternities or sororities.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Some days the weather is very nice and it's beautiful. It will feel like a beach day or a good time to got to the pool. Other days it just rains nonstop, it will rain for weeks at a time.

College Freshman

Majors: I am undeclared for a major. But I didn't get help from any advisors when trying to figure out what career path I should take.

College Freshman

Majors: I am undeclared but when I talk to some professors under certain departments I feel lie I didn't get any information that will help me decide what I want to do.

2 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi is slow at best and is common for it to randomly not work for long periods of time. And buy a printer with your roommates because the printing is very unreliably.

3 College Freshman

Computers: At times the wifi will not work. Sometimes the internet would be down for most of the day, so you can't use the schools computers, or wifi. Sometimes my own wifi doesn't work for some weird reason. When the internet goes down students can't get any work done. Also you can't print your work if you can't get on the computers that's connected to the printers.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus but I know a few students who do live off campus across the street from the school and they hated it. They said they had horrible roach problems.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: For whatever reason, there seems to be a lot of random people who like to yell both during the day and night and no one really cares about that? But when you least want security around they tend to knock on your door saying you are too loud

1 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus schedule to get around town is so difficult to learn, the bus will come about an hour or more late. If you miss a bus the next bus won't come for another hour or even later. The taxis are convenient but so expensive, it's better if you get taxi coupons but eventually that money will add up. The school have shuttles that will only take you to Walmart or Target, but the school has bad promoting so students don't find out about the shuttles until it's too late.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The only games I've been to are the basketball games and basically no one shows up. And those who do seem to not even pay attention to the game.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People tend to stay within their group of friends but are usually accepting if you make an effort

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's too laid back. It's so unorganized, no one knows what to do. Staff will give you the run around just to get help with something. It's hard trying to meet people because people are in cliques. It feels like high school. You can't do much unless you're 21 or you have a car.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is nothing going on at night on campus so you have to leave campus for any fun which means you need a car. Anything you do on campus has to be quiet because you need the windows open otherwise it'll be too hot in the room with more than three people in it. And "quiet hours" start early.
