4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everything's centred around the football team which makes the school spirit pretty awesome. The rugby team is also pretty great. The rec center is new, and it's amazing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There's a few sketchy places, but most of them are pretty decent. The places that the students live in are pretty average college apartments, but the places that the townies would live in are pretty nice. Lots of old people so it's quiet

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's not great or anything. I guess it's like any other town

3 College Freshman

Administration: I mean I haven't had any real problems with admin so I'm assuming it's okay

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: There's a lot of financial aid options and the people in charge of it are super nice and easy to work with

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I mean we're kind of a party school so you can pretty much find parties anywhere, and they're usually pretty awesome

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It can be good for the most part, but usually the swipe meals at outtakes is so so so disgusting.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are relatively small, but still big enough to live in. The RAs are great and plan a ton of activities. The only real downside is all the fire alarms; I've counted 27 just this semester.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are housing fairs, but I found my first apartment through a group of friends who were looking for a fourth roommate. Look for connections! They are usually right under your nose.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't many options that I could not find in any other small town, but what's there is not bad. My personal favorite is El Zarape.

4 College Junior

Administration: The policy on alcohol in dorms is very strict, as is academic honesty.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Like most college students, I completed the FAFSA. Federal work study is a whole different balllgame.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I was not much of a partier, per se (I'm very involved, and I use the weekends to catch up on sleep!) but the ones I did go to were generally house parties of friends I know. It seems like people who want to manage to find their ways to parties pretty easily, from what I hear.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I did not visit the Carillon more than I absolutely had to. For me it was Oaks all the way! I liked the more open layout. It has more space and much better options.

The Union is pretty convenient, though rather pricey.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for two years. My first year I lived in Offenhauer East because that was where the Spanish learning community was housed. My biggest complaint is that there was a resident on my floor who had a habit of trying to get into the girls' bathroom, and despite repeated complaints, management did not remove him.

I enjoyed my year in Founders much more. I especially liked having bathrooms in individual suites rather than having to use a communal shower!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities are great. We've recently received a new recreation center which has so much for the average Joe to go out and exercise. The team spirit on campus is tremendous, everybody is waiting for that next big game for any sport against any team.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of places to eat right off campus, and even some if you're willing to drive a little bit farther away. Two personal favorites of mine are Campus Pollyeyes, which is a fantastic stuffed bread sticks place right across the tracks from campus, and Myles Dairy Queen, which has huge portion sizes and is also right across from the train tracks. We also have chain restaurants such as Frickers, Bob Evans, and Buffalo Wildwings just across Wooster Street towards the off-ramp.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus is pretty strict about making sure that nobody is offended or harmed by any event or action going on (within their knowledge). Typically they make sure that almost nothing will affect academics for students, and if there is, the problem will be dealt with.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting the information through the financial aid offices was probably the most difficult part of applying for it. Once i was able to get it straightened out though, everything was fine.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't take part in parties on or off campus, but my friends have. In most cases i hear they're dirty, crowded, and sometimes violent places where people have no regard to anybody but themselves.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The options on campus are very limited, and the likelihood of getting healthy options is slim. I will often use my meal plan at the Oaks only because they now have a vegetarian/vegan friendly area, which in most cases is the closest thing to healthy food as you can get. The salad bar is much better than the one at the Carillon, as is most of the food, but it is always the same food. After a while, you get sick of eating pasta, pizza, a salad, or whatever they make up in the dining halls.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Starting off it seems like it's a lot of fun, however the dorms often become a battle of who gets to use the showers next or who is able to use the laundry facilities. People will form groups on the floors and will not communicate with people outside their group, often leading to the people on the same floor who doesn't know anybody to be left out.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining options on campus are pretty good. The oaks and carillon sometimes have food that is not good, but the union always comes in handy, but it is very expensive.
