Class sizes are mostly small, which is great for individualized learning and getting to know your professors. Most of my professors have been super kind and accepting, and I've made a lot of friends through my major and through other friends. I love the theatre program here, and the honors program is small but strong. There is no truly gender neutral housing, which is a definite downside for me as a transgender student, but I love living in Fugate. In my experience, most of the students I've met have been moderate, and most of the professors I've had have been liberal, but there are plenty of people on any point of the spectrum. The strong Christian past of the school did worry me at first, but the religious life on campus is definitely a positive force, and even if people don't necessarily agree with you or accept you, the vast majority are nice to you.

I've been here for almost a year and have yet to hear of or witness any crimes on campus. My only safety concern is regarding yikyak and anonymous bullying and hatespeech, but no one has acted upon anything said as far as I know. Security is always on call and super nice and helpful. I feel mostly safe on campus. My only problem is that faculty are required to report sexual assaults to the police (due to federal law, I believe), and many police officers don't take those accusations seriously enough. We are also a dry campus, but many sexual assaults occur while intoxicated. Because of these two things, many are scared to speak up about being assaulted.

Do not attend this school. It is not what is pretends to be. Sports are a top priority at this school while academics seem to be last. You will not get your money's worth. They will make college life non-enjoyable. Many people transfer after their first semester, some even before that. Which leads to a retention rate that is very low. Do not fall for the amount of aid they will provide. Also they act as if they are a religious institution. For the last time, do not waste your time and money by attending this school.
