College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't think I'd be able to fairly rate this myself as I've not gone through the process of off-campus housing yet, but I have visited a lot of friends at their off-campus residences and they have been nice. I don't think there is a lot of hassle getting off-campus housing in general because everyone always finds something for senior year, and there are a lot of places available super close to campus. You pretty much live on-campus, but in a real people house. The only thing is that you have to kind of get started on things early on the year before to get first pick of where you want to live.

Off-Campus Dining: I've had nothing but good experiences with off-campus dining. La Rancherita is absolutely amazing and really reasonably priced, CoolBeanz is the cutest coffeehouse probably ever and actually also has incredible food (try the grilled cheese with pesto), and Whiteys has great ice cream and I think 10% off your order with your student ID. Everything around here is definitely walking accessible, but it is convenient to have a car/friends with cars. There are a lot of options within a short drive as well; Osaka buffet is super good and pretty decently priced, and there's a Steak & Shake nearby. Everything is fantastic.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I know that everyone is held to a high standard here with regards to academics, safety, and integrity. There is a lot of awareness about safety, and action is always taken right away were anything to happen. However, I also know that a lot of less-serious things go unnoticed, and I'm a little salty about the quality of some of the CAs in the dorms. People get away with stuff here, but it's not tooo often and never anything dangerous/serious.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The only reason why I'd describe my experience as being a hassle was because I had to spend a lot of time pestering the wonderful people working in the offices here to try to get more money/options since I'm super poor. They were fantastic about it all, though, and were great with communicating effectively and helping me with whatever they could.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I honestly don't know much of anything about parties because I don't often go to them. Introvert life. But I do know that parties happen, and you have to be invited to Greek life parties by active members in order to go I think?

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I think the food here is honestly a lot better quality than what you'd find at most other colleges. However, a lot of the time I feel like I'm paying for way more than what I actually use because while the buffet style is good for having options, I don't actually eat all that much in the CSL. I'm also not a huge fan of the way all the other food options are kind of being edged out so that the CSL is kind of becoming the only place to eat. Similarly, to be honest, the food in the CC might be equated to the kind of greasy stuff you might get at a concession stand, but I'd be lying if I said I don't choose to eat there over the CSL at least a couple times a week. It might not be the best for you, but at least it's reliably good. Sometimes you can go to the CSL and have a bunch of stuff that's really good, but other times you go in there and don't want to eat anything. The good thing about that, though, is that the sandwich station is pretty reliable, as are the cereal and waffles by the breakfast area. My biggest complaint about anything dining hall related is that you can't use swipes for other people and that the swipes just disappear into oblivion if unused.

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, the water can be shut off or is extremely cold/low water pressure. One time the boiler broke and there was no heat during an extreme cold snap. It's not uncommon to have to wear coats and mittens inside your dorm the way it is, let alone a boiler breaking.

Campus Food: it is easy to always find something i want to eat

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in one of the oldest buildings yet i still love it. everyone gets really close and it feels like a family

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I personally love how supportive the whole campus is of varsity and IM sports it makes the campus more fun.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I feel like most the houses around campus are not that great and for what the landlords charge is just too much with what we already pay for tuition.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Honestly there is so many options around campus to go eat and most give student discounts. Also they are available more times than the csl, delivery is very flexible and convenient too.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I feel like the campus does an ok job at listening to students complaints and trying to meet them half way so they are satisfied. I think that teachers here tend to think they do no wrong and don't really listen to students well as good as administration does.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I find they staff are very helpful, but one thing that really frustrates me is the tuition has gone up every year and no one told me that before I committed to this college and now I feel stuck. I feel there should be a lock-in policy with tuition costs, because tuition goes up but you don't recieve anymore aid

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: For a small school and not being in greek life I have to say the party life here is pretty good. I've been to bigger college parties and honestly I like the ones at Augie better. Especially being on sports teams you can always find a party to go to.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: From when I visited my senior year of high school to my sophomore year here at Augie now the food has improved a lot. I wish there was less greasy options and more hearty options like steamed veggies and grilled fish and chicken more. Mainly I feel this way because most of our campus is filled with athletes, we like to fill up on food but not greasy food. All around the dinning area is very nice but some changes to the menu would really boost the value.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorm buildings are a little out of date but the college has put in a lot of money into redo-ing the older dorm buildings. As for TLA's and apartments I would say they are some of the nicest I've seen at most colleges. The campus janitorial staff are always on top of fixing things and keeping the living areas clean. The campus security is always available to the dorms too constantly driving by to make sure no one suspicious is trying to look in windows or get in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus houses are all fairly nice they just fill up fast and then it is hard to find somewhere to leave at a convenience.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of options if you have a car, but if you can only walk there it is very limited unless you are ordering pizza.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Somethings they are way to strict on, and other things you can't believe you got away with just a small fine. It depends on the crime.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Everyone gets a big scholarship from the school but after that scholarships are few and farbetwen to find.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: It is great. I love going to parties you can meet a bunch of people or just do your thing. No matter what you won't be disappointed at a party.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It is what you'd expect from a college's cafeteria. It's not the best food ever but I definitely think it could be a lot worst

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. The atmosphere is great and you are never bored or lonely. The janitors are all super nice and they do a great job. There are rules but it depends on the person to how they are enforced

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: You'll survive...ish. I swear I eat a burger a day.
