3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a part of the Greek system so I do not know much about it, but I do have friends that seem to enjoy it.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: You just have to know when classes before you are getting out so you know kids will be leaving in their cars and that's when you can find parking.

Off-Campus Housing: The apartment complex I live in is pretty nice, and very accessible to everything.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Somedays it is extremely windy. One day it will be warm, the next day it will cold. When it is warm it is extremely nice.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It is not that noticeable for people. It is not like it is everywhere. People tend to hide it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is many "new" and "different" things to choose from. But their is all the chain restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: All the professors truly care about you as a student and furthering your education.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is not very many choices for bars around the schools area. The school is located in a dry county but we still find ways to party. There is a club where people like to go dance at. Your necessities are all less than 15 minutes away from you.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are plenty of dorms to choose from and there are always people hanging out and having a good time.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting all of the paperwork done was a headache but there was always someone you could call to help take you through step by step.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It dose not seem like Greek life has to much of an impact on non-Greek members.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I haven't noticed a lot of people who seem to abuse alcohol or drugs around campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to choose from and it is usually fairly cheap.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of choices but it seems easier and like less of a hassle to live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The policies are not that hard to live by and are enforced only for everyone's overall safety.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very comfortable when walking alone to class across campus. Also, it is nice to have buff alert which sends notifications if there is a crime or accident anywhere near campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit and rallies when it comes to sporting events around campus. The athletic facilities are some of the best I have ever seen and are always clean and taken care of.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The locals around town are some of the nicest people you could possibly meat. Students can always go hiking in the canyon that is only a few miles from campus and there are always plenty of activities going on everywhere you look.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttle buss is usually very easy to catch and depend on. I have only had to use it once because usually there is no need since everything is so close by around campus.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The surrounding area has a lot to offer including restaurants and bars. If your not in the mood to go to either of those there is always a party somewhere close by that is sure to have people you know and trust there.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is certainly a variety of housing here. I'm currently residing in the oldest dormitory in the state of Texas. It's been... livable, but not fantastic. I am moving to a new dorm this upcoming fall and am quite impressed with it! So there are the dreaded dorms, and the coveted dorms, just like any campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Fast food and Thai food! That's what we're all about here in Canyon!

I actually really love the food here. We have great Thai food, a nice little western diner, and a great Italian restaurant, along with all of the other fast food options. If only they were open later!

Oh, and our local coffee shop earned a spot on the Nation's Top 10 Coffee Shops!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I. Love. My. Major. And I love my department. I'm a double major and have two advisors, and both are great and considerate towards the other. It's fantastic!
