1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Literally nothing to do. No where to go.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: NEED A CAR TO GO ANYWHERE.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you aren't in greek life, there is NOTHING to do. Everyone acts like they are so much better for being in greek life.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A lot of weird looking people. But some are good looking

3 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into the Education program is nearly impossible. And NO ONE offers any help even if asked.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of druggies, campus safety and cops are always out to get you.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are bus stations not far from the school if you need transport to a place with either a train or an airport.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crimes for the most part do not happen on Main or West Campus, although they are a possibility on North Campus simply because it is so close to a shady part of the city. Most crimes happen off campus, and are quickly dealt with.

Majors: I haven't had one yet, but I plan on it when I get to my junior or senior year. The school is extremely helpful in finding internships.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The Psychology program here is good, although they do focus more on the research end than the counseling end. If you are looking to be a counselor, it may be better for you to consider the Behavioral Science program.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not only is it nearly impossible to get the school to allow you to live off campus if you started out on campus, but the houses are all in a pretty shady neighborhood. If you're looking for off campus housing to avoid the cost of living on campus, it isn't worth it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman housing isn't the greatest. Apartment style housing is nice, not always close to classes though. Juniors/Seniors usually take the closest apartments.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless is pretty rough outside of any campus building, but the network speed is relatively fast.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I receive $17k a year, which is the highest scholarship available besides a full ride scholarship. Because this school is so inexpensive compared to other schools, all I needed to do was apply for FAFSA and my state's financial aid program, get the maximum amount of aid available for those programs, and take out a $3000 loan from a private vendor. Financial aid from the school could use a bit of improvement.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus, whether it be sexual orientation, political beliefs, religion, or ethnic/racial diversity. Mostly everyone is welcoming of each other, and those who aren't are few and far between.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The campus is a "dry campus" but it's very easy to get around that. If or when you get caught with anything worse than alcohol, the penalty is pretty steep: expulsion. But most people don't get caught, that I know of. Alcohol is always hidden, but it's not hard to find.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know next to nothing about the Greek life here on campus, because I never even considered joining a sorority. Greek housing is generally nicer than regular housing I think... I mean, there are houses around campus that Greeks are in, but I'm not sure how that works...

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not an athlete by any means, but even I can appreciate how excellent Grumbacher Fitness Center is!

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Basically if you do not have a car you cant go anywhere off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I have noticed a lot more diversity in the past couple of years. It keeps increasing.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at this school are great. Registration is very stressful however.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: To be honest the greek life here is really annoying. If you are not in it people look down on you and you can tell. For such a small school the greek life system should not mean that much.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major i really do. However, applying for ppes is not very organized and can be extremely difficult when it comes to registering for classes.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is pretty good. I love being able to experience working with kids through the field experience but that program is not very organized either.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: A lot of attempted robberies or other crimes have happened on campus to students and campus security lacks the ability to stop it or catch the offenders.
