5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lax is a great place.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: As a female I have never felt unsafe walking around campus or off campus. We have stations on every building on campus where you can call the campus police and they will escort you to where you are trying to go. In the dorms it is very safe because doors are always open and we have RAs walking around at all times of the day. Everybody is pretty good at locking their room when they are not in it so very few things get stolen.

Athletics: The main sport that people think of when you talk about college sports is football and UW Lacrosse does not have a football community. Very few people attend the games and when they do they are more focused on the people in the stands than the game going on on the field. Attendance is low because we don't have a good football team. Because we aren't the best we don't have a lot of school spirit. Basketball, volleyball, and baseball are fairly good teams but there is low attendance at those games, only people who know the players go to the games. The athletic facilities are great, there is enough seating for the crowd and it is always clean.

Campus Strictness: Our campus police are very strict when it comes to parking, they will write you a ticket if you go one minute past the meters time. Other than that our police are pretty low key. They only approach you if you have open alcohol or if you are having a very difficult time getting to where you are going.

Greek Life: We have very few fraternities and sororities on campus. Because of that when freshmen come to school joining Greek life isnt something that is top on the list to do. We also do not have any Greek housing that is directly linked to the schools chapter. Some brothers or sisters of the fraternity or sorority might live together but that is the extent of housing for Greek life. Non-Greeks view Greek students as goody goodies. The people in the fraternities and sororities give off the vibe that is all about volunteering and not having any fun that isnt in a formal manner.

Academics: Being a business management major I am among students who are interested in the same field. With so many students in Lacrosse being interested in Management and business in general we have great teachers in this field. They are very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to their specific course and material. We have clubs that are only for business majors. One of them being Delta Sigma Pi which allows students to meet students from all over the country who are involved in this fraternity through LEAD programs and other conferences. The work load for a business major isn't too heavy. We are expected to study and prepare ourselves for exams but it is nothing that is over whelming.

Academics: The professors are very helpful in their field of study, they are also enthusiastic about the topics they teach. They are open to questions students may have and encourage debate and student participation in the class room. The registration process is all electronic which is very helpful considering almost every student has a laptop they are constantly on. Every students complaint is that there aren't enough sections of the classes that are required. Lacrosse is very helpful when a student needs help with a class. Tutors are provided for every subject, for communication majors or minors there is an area where you can go to practice speeches and receive feedback and ways to improve your speech. The most popular place to study, like most campuses, is the library. It is okay to study in there but in the quiet section most people dont always respect the silent aspect of those sections. The main classroom building is also a popular area for students to study during the week because it provides classrooms that students can practice speeches/presentations in or do group work with out disturbing others.

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food is made in mass quantities so it has never been that good. They need more variety other then making the same lunches on a regular basis. They also need more healthy choices such as a vegetable bar and more fruit options. The best place to eat I thought was the cellar, but they had no fruit options so i did not like to go there.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing offered at my school is poor. Many of the houses are old and falling apart, but still can rack up a rent of 1200 a month due to the high demand that our campus puts on housing. The pros of our off campus housing is that it is pretty close to campus, almost under half a mile in certain areas. The cons would be that it is expensive for such low quality.
