Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
The average student on campus does not know what they want to major in, enjoys procrastinating on homework by spending time with their friends, and loves going to the Caf. There are too many different types of people on campus to define a "normal" student, but the differences among the student body do not stratify people and create cliques. Instead, students are adept at accepting others for their differences, and rarely do people expect someone to be exactly like themselves.
Relationships are common and tend to be about having fun together. The student body as a whole remains reserved during classes, but anything can happen at the late-night parties. People that date tend to be involved in the same extracurricular activities or academic majors. While some enjoy laid-back dates on campus, most couples try to make time to get off campus on a regular basis.

Campus Corner is a favorite hang out for many non-Greek students on the weekends.

The dress code varies greatly on campus and depends on the student and their classes. Some colleges, especially the College of Business, expect students to be dressed in business clothes every day. Most students dress very casually for classes, however, and jeans, cargo shorts, and leggings are often worn with campus-affiliated T-shirts. On weekend nights, however, students who are partying dress up.
