Health & Safety: I've never really felt unsafe on campus, unless I was walking home alone, but I shouldn't be doing that anyway.

Campus Housing: I love my dorm (dejope) but the size of the hallways makes it hard to feel like a tight knit community because they're just SO big. I have my friend group in the smaller dorms, mostly because they all really feel like they live with each other where Dejope just feels cut off.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I've never seen any issues with racial inequalities.
