4 College Junior

Academics: Being in the School of Theatre and Dance is always very interesting. You can always catch students rehearsing in the lobby and there are always a performance around the corner to catch. It's a very vibrant college to be in.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel like I'm constantly getting emails about armed robberies and assaults that happen around the same time in the evenings on campus by people in the area who do not attend the university. It's really unfortunate. I have a number of friends who have called for escorts but usually get put on an hour to an hour and a half waiting time to get to their location.

4 College Junior

Computers: I've never had an issue using any of the labs. The biggest concern would be the wifi, but it's gotten much better since I was a freshman.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: suck the fun out of college. hate it

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: it could be ten times better!! all they focus on is football which sucks cause we are in a basketball conference and we are getting whopped. in my opinion we need some help in this department

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: ive tried my hardest to get scholarship but most of them target freshmans which suck for upper classmen

3 College Sophomore

Majors: overall i think the advisor can be more understanding and realistic with the expectation they have for students.

College Sophomore

Majors: i just started my degree so i haven't had a full on experience so i don't want to say anything that can tarnish something that ive just begun

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Since I'm a graduate student, I do not have a lot of time to go out. However, I have heard that the bars and clubs in the Montrose and Midtown area are good.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is not that scary walking alone on campus during the night but there's always an escort service to take you where you need to go without having to walk there yourself.

Majors: As a science major, it's a plus if you have an internship related to what you are studying since it will help you gain experiences that are essential for your career.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: The NSM (Natural Sciences/Math) is really lacking course variety when it comes to electives for subjects like chemistry and biology.. A lack of variety in science courses could lead to students having a narrow knowledge and experience with science in general. They really need to stop making this school a haven for the pre-med students.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshmen are required to live with a roommate, but if you are an upperclassmen you have more options to choose from where you want to live.

College Junior

Transportation: Not much transportation provided by the school. The parking is terrible for those who do commute and traffic does not help to keep the cost down at all. You need a car to get around anywhere in the city but having one on campus is just a hassle. Plus the parking is expensive and far from the majority of campus where the bulk of classes are.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: the off-campus dining places are mostly fast food restaurants and chain restaurants. Nothing to fancy but nothing really special. They are also very hard to get to if you do not have a ride to get to them.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus but have visited some of my friends dorms/lofts. Classes can be 5-15 walk but there are busses. Seemed like enough room to get by and create your own atmosphere.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: You can find all kinds of people here, most who are open minded to learning or teaching each other.
