3 College Sophomore

Diversity: We are actually having issues with diversity right now due to a lack of diversity amongst students. We have a Take a Stand Against Racism every year which is good but there is more to be done amongst the mindsets of students and faculty before there can truly be change.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Our campus is located in two cities: Norfolk and Virginia Beach. There are plenty of things to off campus but again you have to be willing to explore. It is also more helpful to have a car because our bus system is ridiculously inefficient. Proximity to other cities is pretty good to.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus Strictness is about fair; they have rules and if you don't abide by them, there are consequences ranging from parking tickets, to Village Council, to expulsion.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of restaurants in the Hampton Roads area but you have to be willing to explore the area. Down the street however there are a good number of options for students to eat at.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security is present at intervals. I felt safe when I lived on campus, my only concern was raccoons honestly. Of course there's always a concern of rape at parties but that's because of the violent culture we live in America. You can always call security to escort you anywhere you'd like. My only gripe is the consistency of the security procedures at the gate.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Residence Life and Security come down pretty hard on drug and alcohol use there isn't that much of a problem here. Of course students have there ways around it but I don't partake so I am not the right person to talk about this with.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am currently a commuter, but when I lived an campus the experience was okay. I think it depends on where you live it each village that determines whether or not your experience is good or bad. I think the best housing is probably Village 3 apartments or suites. The process for housing lottery is pretty easy, you just have to make sure you have registered for classes, know where you want to live and who you want to live with. The cost for living on campus is expensive, which is why I am a commuter, but it is very convenient to live on campus so that you can be connected to everyone and everything.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Hampton Roads is extremely iffy when it comes to the weather. When it is nice and warm, being outside on campus is great but when it rains some of the pathways flood easily.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a scholarship when I was admitted to the school. We have weekly emails alerting us for other scholarships, mostly external scholarships. The key is going to get to know the financial aid office. They are more willing to help you if they know who you are and how they can help.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the annual events we have like The President's Pig Roast or Spring Fling. I love how small the school is and the opportunities to succeed and be connected.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have shuttle vans, but I don't use them because I am a local and take the bus/catch a ride home. The only problem I have is that we do not have a partnership with our local transportation department thus causing me to come out my own pocket to get back and forth to school.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had my internship as of yet. However, there are weekly emails, giving the students leads on job and opportunities and scholarships. I am considering doing an internship abroad because we have the option to do so through study abroad providers who have a partnership with my school.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I think my program is pretty great. It certainly isn't easy, but neither is college. My only wish is that when my school switched over from a three-credit system to a four-credit system, they created classes to replace classes that disappeared from the previous credit system. I honestly have no idea when I want to do career wise, but we have a great career services office on campus that should be able to help me. My concerns about finding a job really have more so to do with societal structures and prejudices than the qualifications I will obtain throughout my schooling.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academic level is great and helpful...they want to see the students that try succeed

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I believe they have room for improvement

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Many things you wouldn't normally have are provided in the dorms/apartments.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I am not around the dorms where most of the drinking takes place.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not apart of Greek Life and don't plan to join.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many different places to choose, going from fast food to sit down restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Because we are so close to the beach, the beach weather can affect us with the different weather alerts.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The best transportation that is provided from my school is the transportation they provide to the train/bus stations

4 College Freshman

Diversity: It's a great diversity of people on campus, from the staff to the students

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's a great scenery; many places to visit and is in a reasonable distance.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They make sure we are protected to the best of their ability. They are always looking out for their students and available regularly.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most buildings are kind of old, however they are better than most university housing. youll only get an average room as a freshman than they move you up.
