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 Sophomore

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 Sophomore

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

3 College Sophomore

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

3 College Sophomore

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

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I dont party, so I am unaware.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is not too expensive which is amazing. Teachers are awesome.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Not many options, but Campys, Lager and Spuds are really awesome!

3 College Senior

Party Scene: No real weekend stuff to do, but lots of parties

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Fairly good, no chains, but definately not bad for college meals

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Been to other schools and the atmosphere here is alot more welcoming! Very friendly People, food is decent, and teachers are mostly helpful. Money is not spent properly, however, beautiful campus, especially for a public school.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Similar to any other school I would say.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing significant, very average for the area.

3 College Junior

Administration: Very average for the current student environment.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: I have attempted to receive a scholarship every year for my internship and have always been turned away.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Seems fairly average to most schools, frats have good parties and the bars seem to have a good time as well, but nothing out of the ordinary it seems.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: They definitely try to have a variety of options, but they are rather expensive and I find myself not wanting to take advantage of them now that I don't have a meal plan.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are amazing, they keep them in great shape and the atmosphere really makes you feel comfortable.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Vulcan is a bit far and pricey. Any houses are too far from campus. I really don't want to stay in a dorm all of my four years.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Im too poor for any of this. If I do have extra money and grab food, I end up getting sick from grease.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
