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!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have not participated in an internship yet, but from what I've heard, the internships here are pretty fabulous.

2 College Freshman

Parking: This is my biggest complaint about the college (other than the lack of parties). Find a spot and glue your car to it!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm a music major. I'm not qualified at all to answer this question. Lol

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's Texas weather. Hot one day, cold the next. Cold mornings, burning afternoons, high winds. It keeps it interesting. And I like it!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm still living on campus, but have several friends who live off campus here in Canyon, as well as in Amarillo. There are tons of apartments in the area.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Canyon is a small little town. Exciting for Canyon is live music at the local coffee shop every weekend (which I personally enjoy). There are some events in Amarillo, but if you want a big party school, keep looking.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Core classes are just that: core classes, basics that you have to get out of the way. It's a pain. But the classes that are specifically designed for your field are great!

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: From what's I've experienced, the campus police, professors, and RA's are lenient, though they expect you to abide for the rules. I'm pretty much a rule follower, so I'm in the clear usually. The strictest anyone ever gets is usually over parking spaces.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied to college pretty late, so I'm not sure how financial aid went for the average student. My second semester, I voiced my complaint to one of my professors, and shortly after I received a $500 scholarship. I am very grateful for it, but am still looking for more scholarships.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: From what I've seen within my own department, diversity in terms of race, gender, and sexuality are embraced.
