3 College Senior

Campus Quality: The campus looks nice, mostly everything is up to date

2 College Senior

Local Area: There is nothing around the campus, the school makes up the whole town. Everything outside of the campus feels weird and uncomfortable

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The white fraternities and sororities are badically the stereotypical things you see in the movies. The black fraternities and sororities stick together and do many things together as an organization.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Vulcan Village is away from the campus, by the football stadium, and you need to drive or catch the bus there. It's not too far though. There are also town houses right around the campus but they look old and run-down.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: It's HORRIBLE! The only thing we have around campus is Subway, Diary Queen, Spuds & Campys which is pizza and stuff like that, and a Chinese place that idek how it is still open.

3 College Senior

Administration: The campus is not very strict unless someone brings an issue to their attention or they notice something theirself.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I received the Board of Governs scholarship during a visit before orientation. I also have other scholarships from high school

3 College Senior

Party Scene: All of the campus parties were held in the performance center in Natali but it has been under construction for a few semesters now so there hasn't really been any on campus parties for awhile.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient, everything is within walking distance.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The nice apartments are very expensive. The other houses are junky but cheaper. I live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't much around maybe a few places to eat.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've never been in a situation where administration was involved but they seem to be good.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a scholarship on a visit which was nice, but do not qualify for financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are only a few places to eat. Not enough variety or good quality.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are spacious and you have your own bathroom. There are always opportunities to get together for activities with the building. My building is very close to my classes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off-campus so I'm not sure how it is.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's like 3 places you can go to and they're very dirty and don't have the best food.

3 College Freshman

Administration: We can pretty much do what we want. Police will fix any issues.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I've been applying for scholarships but haven't won any yet. Financial aid was not fun to complete.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: At first, I thought the food was pretty good but after a while, I got tired of it. I wish each place had more options. I also wish they stayed open longer.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy living in a residence hall because I've met some really nice people and it gives me the experience of living with a room mate.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am a online student so I barely need to go to the main campus, but if I do the safety and parking seems to be good. Parking is inexpensive and the saftey seems to be a big part of campus life. Security guards are friendly and give assistance when needed. I am unsure about landlords, because I am off campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not many places close to campus in general. But there are fast food options and diners.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school policies can be strict at times depending on the situation.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Start as early as possible don't put it off. Apply for as many scholorships as you can.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Cal U may not seem like much to an outsider. It is small and quiet, even dull at times. The surroundings are not the most stimulating or exciting. But Cal U is a diamond in the rough, a sort of oasis among the diminishing coal communities in the area. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the education you receive at the University goes beyond the classroom. It is an affordable way to obtain higher education after high school, and it's also a playground for students for the four years they reside on campus.

The people you meet at Cal can be future employers, wise teachers, role models, or even just good friends. With its ever-present urge for excellence, Cal U is growing into a school that can match up against larger schools. Many students agree that while they like the school, they would make changes to it, but most students would choose Cal over again if given the chance. Leaving home to come to Cal is a great way to find out who you are without distractions and to learn about the decisions you’ll make the rest of your life.
