Administration: The administration can be pretty strict when it comes to things like alcohol and drug use, but that's understandable.

Party Scene: All of the parties here are pretty average, nothing outrageous, but still fun if you're with the right people.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The only tip I have for anyone is to have good grades coming into college. That was my main problem trying to get financial help, it was such a pain.

Campus Food: Hicks is my least favorite dining option. I feel like the dishes are unsanitary and I'm pretty sure I've gotten sick from there, just like other students have complained to have happen to them. The food is decent and fired chicken Friday is my favorite. But, I rarely use any of my meal swipes there. I mainly spend most of my meal swipes and dining dollars at CINO Grill, Chick-Fil-A and UP Cafe.

Campus Housing: Instead of living directly on campus, I basically live down the street in university owned apartments called University Place. In my opinion, these apartments are the best options compared to the other dorms on campus. I like how spacious the living space is. I couldn't stand how closed in the other dorms were when I first saw them on tours. They made me feel very closed in and claustrophobic. I just knew I had to stay in a University Place apartment even though they are the most expensive options, the price is definitely worth it to me. There is a kitchen included (unlike some of the dorm settings), a washer and dryer (instead of having to go to the washers and dryers that aren't included inside of dorms directly on campus), dining table and a pretty spacious living room to comfortably have a couple of friends over. The bedrooms also have a decent amount of space even if you have to share it with a roommate like I did during my first semester. Since UP is kind of like its own island separate from the university and all of its dining options, it's pretty cool that there is a cafe and convenient store that students can walk to if they don't want to go on campus for something. Another cool feature of the university are the shuttles. They take students from campus, UP, the school's science center, and even Walmart during certain hours! This is even a convenient option for students who have cars because they can save a lot of gas per week by riding the shuttles. The overall atmosphere of University Place is pretty chill and relaxed. There isn't a big issue of a lot of noise or chaos going on unless you have the pleasure of being stuck by some rowdy neighbors like I did.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party at all unfortunatly. too much homework.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was incedibly difficult for me to recive my financial aid. The people in the financial aid office are very hard to work with.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: It would be the best if the Subway and Chic-fil-a could take meal swipes! Hicks is usually okay if you go to the deli or go to the salad bar. Sometimes though the food is gross. I personally don't like CINO's burgers but that's just me. I just wish there were more options in the dining hall.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Aside from living with roommates that I don't necessarily like, I overall love living in campus housing. The roommate situation was out of my control, so I can't be mad about it. The dorms I live in are really nice for being freshman housing, I get my own room and I share a shower and bathroom with three others. The social atmosphere is great, strangers are always smiling and waving at each other, and everyone is very welcoming. The cost is expensive only if you are out of state. in state tuition is fairly cheap for college. the housing process was very easy. I was assigned a freshman dorm, but I got to choose my own dorm for next year with friends.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard they are adequate enough. But I would not know as I live at home.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to eat outside of coastal. Tropical Smoothie is right across the highway and very good!

College Freshman

Administration: I have heard that they are strict, but I don't know from personal experience.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They asked me 2 or 3 times to prove that I was an American citizen after I already sent them my naturalization form.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't and haven't gone to a party at my school.

College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't have a meal plan because I live at home.
