4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Typically the food has good flavor and a good assortment of vegetables, fruits, meats and carbs. Sometimes the food is made with less care, especially at the Black Swamp. I try to always use swipes at the dining halls and so I even out how much I use the different food locations. I try to save as many falcon dollars that I can for the end of the year when they might be needed more. I don't waste money getting a new beverage everyday but make use of water bottles and drinking fountains.

Off-Campus Housing: I personally, have not lived off campus yet; but based on some of my friends' experiences I have gathered that good housing can be found close to campus with good lenient landlords. They are good sized and will meet your needs and are cheaper than living on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good restaurants around in pretty easy walking distance. The variety is nice, the food is well done as far as I've experienced. Sometimes the costs are little more than I'd like but that's at certain places. I really like Call of the Canyon Café, Qdoba, Sam B's, Frickers and Chipotle Grill.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It seemed that people were able to get away with drugs and alcohol use more than they should and in spite of everything the RAs would try, people were still noisy at night when others are trying to sleep.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was a rather long process that required the aid of my parents to fill out their information. However, I received a good amount of financial aid. I would suggest applying earlier on in the year for financial aid to receive the most that you can. And work hard in class for good grades because you may receive extra financial awards that you were never aware of.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is the way to go! It is so much cheaper and less of a hassle than the dorms. There are several facilities and apartment complexes off campus that are much nicer than the dorms. I definitely recommend Charing Cross and Winthrop Terrace. They are affordable.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few local restaurants in town, Grounds for Thought is a pretty cool coffee and book shop. There are several average bars and a lot of fast food places. There is a sushi restaurant on Wooster Street called Uraku Sushi that is pretty delicious.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: This is not a party school at all. This school is mainly focused on academics and Ohio businesses and independent scenes. There are a lot of hipsters. The frat houses are not very loud either. It's a quiet university. If you really want to party, go to the house parties. Those are basically the only ones worth going to, especially if it's a student from the theater department throwing the party.

3 College Junior

Administration: The faculty has rules about student attendance, but acknowledges that it is up to the student to come to class or not. They will reduce your grade if you miss too many classes though. I barely ever see campus police do anything but hand out tickets. They don't stop people when they are fighting loudly, but that barely ever happens on campus. Starting a new organization is difficult though.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: They offer very little scholarships, especially in the arts program. It is rather abysmal. Applying online seems easy, but they never email you back to tell your your application was received, no matter how many times I filled it out. I would email and call them, and they would just refer me to the website until it was too plate to apply. I never got the scholarships, never heard from them or knew if they received my application, even though I submitted the application and tried to talk with them.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Not the best food. The Oaks has good food every once in a long while. The Union's food is not so great either. However, the BG One cards can be used off campus at several locations in town, including CVS, so that is a major plus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus is not very large, and so it is not hard to get around. There are several different dorms, two of which, Krischer and Herschman, I would not recommend as they found asbestos in the foundations of the buildings. Founders is the best dorm by far. The social atmosphere is very friendly in most dorms. There are places to eat in the dorms, small restaurants and such. The cost is what really seems unfair though, for the tiny rooms and very few bathrooms. The housing process is pretty open, I have been able to choose my roommate, so that's pretty amazing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm a freshman and have to stay on campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The swipes are a waste of money. I didn't get to use them all because of the timing of classes versus the AYCE operating hours and needing to study. Next year, I'm having an all Falcon Dollars plan. It'll be worth it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like where I live. I'm able to live in this dorm because I have a disability. It's very clean, and convenient to the buildings where my classes are. It wasn't hard to get into this dorm. Founders Hall is great!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not big on Greek Life

Off-Campus Housing: I wouldn't know to much on this subject.
