3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They have a lot of games but I unfortunately am only at school on the weekends and not able to attend a lot of the sporting events. The facilities look fine and the gym looks very much up to date and hold a decent crowd.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The college is in a residential neighborhood but its a nice area with a lot of stores and restaurants close by and some apartments and houses are always renting to the college kids.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I mean you drive one mile from campus and you are near Miller Park. Target, grocery stores, Wendy's, Qdoba plus a to fo other places. Everything is right there for food.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I am on the weekend college program and I have seen several of the administrators including the President of the college on campus there on the weekend too. I like that they around and involved in what all the students are doing not just traditional day students.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Not a lot of financial aid (other than loans) for graduate students, not the school's fault I realize that. But a graduate scholarship program would be nice even 500 bucks or so would be a start to help with books etc.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: They do a lot of on campus activities at night which is cool, keeps people on campus instead of driving downtown sometimes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Need more sushi available for weekend college. I like not having to leave campus for food they have a lot of choices. Long wait in lines though. Salad bar is pricey, pay per ounce.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I do not eat off campus because I live on my own.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I'm not sure I do not use the transportation because I have a vehicle.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't received any help from the finical aid office. The one time I went in there to ask if I applied for a scholarship the women pulled up my file and LAUGHED at me while I was sitting right next to her as she responded "no".

Party Scene: It's ok. It does what it needs to.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I was actually surprised with the variety of food the campus has to offer. I get the sandwiches which I always pack with the most I can. I feel the prices are a little high and I don't like that if you have a meal plan you cost is lowered.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus nor have a see the dorms

College Freshman

Party Scene: There are rarely any parties that I know of. I do not hear much about them so I do not know if there are even night parties.

1 College Student

Scholarships: It's great if you're einstein, rich, or completely broke, ward of the state, but otherwise you're not going to get much help if any. You'll be about $120,000 in debt by your 4th year. enjoy.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: We don't have much campus crime. It's an all girl school which helps lower sexual assault. There is a security number. As for health there aren't many services. We do have a fitness center, however, it's VERY outdated.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: they don't provide off campus housing, nor even help.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got all the money i needed

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not involved in any sports

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's not really that strict. Just do what your suppose to do.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety and security are very big on my campus, you are able to see the on campus security regularly. If you need to reach them to ask a question they are more then willing to have you in their office to answer any questions. Security's phone number is found through out the buildings. We also have the blue light safety system on campus which is great to have in situations where students feel uncomfortable or unsafe going to their car or to a building, security is more than willing to escort you to where you are needing to go on campus. The fact that only student who live on campus can assess the buildings is also helpful and creates a sense of security for all the individuals living there. I have always felt safe on campus and never had any problems that the security team didnt have a plan for or an idea on how to resolve.
