I spend most of my time in the library when I'm on campus-- I wish the quiet study areas were quieter, but students can be rude: what are you going to do?
There's a few places to hang out, mainly around the buildings; no large and spacious areas, though.
Overall, my experience at this school has been very lonely. I don't know if it's because it's a commuter campus and everyone seems to be coming from somewhere else (Stockton, Antioch, Tracy), or because people don't really care, but it is difficult to make friends here. In free moments before and after class people are literally glued to their cell phones. After class is over, people are in a mad dash to leave.
The best thing to do if you go here is to make sure that you already have friends. It seems like many people that go here came with their friends from high school, or with all of their cousins; some also went to the high school down the street, Moreau. You might also make friends if you're super, super outgoing, or if you join one of the Greek organizations (but with those, you have to be a certain type of person). Perhaps it has just been my experience there, but I haven't made any of the close relationships that people hope to make in college. As a Black female who is seen as "weird" by other Black people, I feel out of place, and so don't fit in there; I guess I also don't possess the typical interests that a college student is supposed to have, and so, like I said, it's difficult to meet people.
Overall, it seems to me that coming to this school seeking out a campus with an active social scene is not a good idea. This school seems to be geared towards those who want to come to school, go to class, and then go back to their hometowns right afterwards. Any sense of a community is nonexistent here.
Mixture of old and new buildings. The raw gym is new and has a lot to offer. One library on campus that isn't anything special. The science building as a whole seem outdated.
School usually swamps everyone and dampens the mood but overall average college life-just depends if the student is more focused on studying or friends
I would have to say the best placwes on campus are the RAW and the Old Union.
I like that our campus is fairly small.
And our freshman dorms are the nicest that I've ever seen, I had a beautiful view on my balcony!
The whole campus is just gorgeous, and so many beautiful views.
