3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: While I haven't seen any hard drug use, I have heard of many times when students have been using Adderall, marijuana, or alcohol (or other drugs) on campus. Usually, at night, I can smell marijuana on my walk back to my dorm or even in my dorm and it makes for an unpleasant atmosphere sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public Safety does a good job of making campus fairly safe. However, at night, some of the officers make it seem like it is a hassle to drive/walk you back to your dorm from South Street Lot. I haven't had any terrible experiences with Public Safety myself and I feel that they are doing a good job, but rarely I do hear negative statements about their service to students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics at Castleton are very involved physically. That being said, the students that play varsity athletics are sometimes not the most attentive in class. Granted, if I had practice at six in the morning, I probably wouldn't be too excited about going to class all day either. Overall, I think that there is more to be done in athletics in relation to academics, but there are also quite a few student athletes that have made Dean/President's list so that should be acknowledged too. I love my school and going to all of the games, whether they are football games, soccer, games, softball/baseball games, etc.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. Castleton is the school for me. The University is far enough away from home for me to feel independent, but Castleton still has a hometown feel that makes me comfortable two and a half hours away from my family.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It is d3 but football is the largest sport

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Outside of campus there is nothing to do.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: From what I know, and my experiences, Castleton has always handled safety concerns very seriously. It is a small campus that is easy to navigate, even for students off campus. Many times I have felt safe walking around the town at night, or to and from Castleton facilities.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The courses are always interesting, small class sizes are great and give you the opportunity to have a great relationship with your professors. They genuinely care about students and their understanding and success.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I believe Castleton does a lot to ensure a student's success. One way they do this is by helping us form connections for beyond our degree. There are a number of resources and individuals that are readily available to answer questions or concerns for the future.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Although I never actually lived on campus, I spent a lot of time visiting friends in dorms. I've always felt that Castleton dorms were very average for students, and there are a number of offerings for housing types. It is always good to provide students with options, be it sober housing, suites, singles or triples.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The Greek life is fairly quiet, however, the men and women that participate are very friendly and welcoming to newcomers. They are responsible for some of the best dances!

4 College Senior

Athletics: Castleton has a lot to offer for student athletes. The student body is very invested in sports teams and their success.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Castleton couldn't have given me a better college experience. There is nothing better than knowing you are getting a top notch education, and are surrounded by people that are as invested in your future as you are. You can't go wrong with Castleton.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There isn't much crime or assault, so I feel safe on the campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are great. There are many courses offered, yet some of the frame requirements are not very beneficial. Having to take a bunch of art classes makes me feel like I'm paying a lot of money for nothing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The nursing program will allow great job opportunity, not sure about any other majors though.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's not very important, most just sports houses.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Variety of sports, fun to attend!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Small, friendly, but the nursing program is extra$

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: its cheap and the teachers dont suck

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: they help you with whatever they can so that you find a job

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: they have so many rules

3 College Freshman

Athletics: it's not bad for a D3 school

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like this school has given me the confidence to do well in life later on. I failed the first semester only because I had a tough first semester with plenty of life stresses and they gave me another chance. To which I got A's and some B's.. so its a very understanding school and the teachers have hearts.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It was very easy to navigate the application and admission process. I got an email and a phone call from a professor encouraging me to attend.
