3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I've never had a problem with on-campus police. Sometimes they will patrol events like dances just to make sure there isn't obvious underage drinking. The only thing I've ever run into a problem with them is parking tickets, make sure you have a parking pass for on-campus!

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: I don't eat in the dining hall a lot, but when I do I love it! Lots of choices, very vegetarian friendly. I personally love the cafe on campus, different specials everyday, a coke freestyle machine and a sandwich/salad bar. Get some dining dollars, because you will likely use them regardless of if you live on campus or off at one point or another. They do free meals around finals as well!

Local Atmosphere: The town is VERY small. Small as in there is only one grocery store. There is a variety of dining options though, and multiple bars. Beware though, they will all be filled with a mixture of college students and 'townies'. There are some late night study spots, more open up around finals (especially within local churches). There are great parks though, and lots of community activities. A local farmers market, a great co-op and a free fair are some of my favorites. The horticulture gardens are always fun to visit. But as far as swimming outdoors and shopping goes, you'll have to drive 40 min to Alexandria to be fully satisfied.

Greek Life: The Greek Life here at Morris is basically non-existent. There are a couple organizations but they are mostly academic based and they are pretty small.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Lots of cute boys here at Morris (girls too)! Lots of very well dressed guys and gals, and most are very involved around campus so you will see them often. The campus is really small though, so if a relationship goes south chances are you will be seeing their face a lot, so take that into consideration. The campus is very LGBTQ friendly, so making assumptions is risky business here, but most people are pretty open to letting you know. The types of people range to basically every group you could think of, from strong muscular jocks, to quirky art students; you're sure to find someone you'd be interested in if you look!

3 College Senior

Athletics: Sports vary here at Morris. While we do have the standard homecoming games that are super popular, and other 'big' games most are pretty low key and the campus doesn't really go wild over them. That being said there are a lot of options when it comes to participating, and people are really dedicated. They are always tabling in the student center and lots of people support them and will buy shirts/button/scarves, we just don't really get rowdy like you will see on the TC campus.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I never lived on campus, always off. Housing was easy enough to find, and the price is very reasonable compared to other towns. The pro's are that you are basically within walking distance to everything still (because it is a small town), but the cons would be you miss out on making friends sometimes if you go straight to off-campus housing (unless you live with multiple roommates)! People are almost always looking for roommates, and posting to the student email list about openings. There are some less than favorable landlords, but as long as you know your rights they are manageable. Safety is a huge pro, the crime rate in Morris is super low, it is not an issue if you forget to lock your door at night. Parking with off-campus housing can be tricky sometimes if you have a car. Not all places have garages and most parking is off-street parking, but I haven't run into any places that don't have parking or make you pay for it, so that is nice.
