5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it at cumberland

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I go to Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee. The only thing that hasn't been so great about my experience is the fact that I live off campus. I live in Hermitage with my boyfriend, and work in Donelson. Commuting back and forth is tiring, and it's hard to do things sometimes because of work. College has been really hard, but I know that it will so worth it in the end. Just gotta keep pushin' on

Off-Campus Housing: Its okay, Cumberland is just surrounded by a bunch of small houses.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: You have to drive to go anywhere to eat off-campus. I know of one organic thai food place. There is a Panda Express and then just a couple other fast food places. Average price of lunch is $7-10.

Food options at Cumberland are really disappointing. I'm guessing they are keeping it the way it is because "Cumberland has historical prestige and any change to that would ruin it," which is a load of poop.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have never been barred from doing whatever I want on campus. As long as you do not do anything inappropriate, it is great.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Since the school is so small, there are not that many people the office workers have to deal with, so they are fast and courteous about the financial aid process. If any errors are made or any questions, they are readily available to help.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are only the cafeteria and the Bulldog Bistro.

The cafeteria food is better than high school food, but not by much, which is extremely disappointing considering tuition costs. The Bistro is way better to eat at. It is a mixture of Papa Johns with other options like subs and an assortment of junk food. The pizza is delicious though.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I haven't lived on campus, but i have a couple friends that do. I have been to their dorms, and its worse than hotel rooms. They are small and not so good. These are the freshman dorms though. At the current cost of tuition, I am very disappointed in what Cumberland has to offer considering freshman dorms.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's not that bad, just depends

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid office will work with you.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I personally enjoy going to Silverado's some Saturday nights, it's a mix of music but has an amount of country and line dancing

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not the best, but if you're hungry it will do

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshmen housing is okay it could be updated and I wish the rooms were a tad bit bigger, seeing as though you have to share a space with the another person, however there are people who clean the bathrooms and hallways which is an amazing perk!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I know of the off campus housing but I've never been inside of them. They look pretty nice from the outside, though.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different options to choose from near campus. Whether you want to go to a small restaurant like Chik-Fil-A or Red Lobster.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They regularly check around to make sure there is nothing bad going on.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I ended up getting financial aid but I still have to pay quite a bit of money.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not really sure because I haven't been to a party at all. I've heard of a few around campus on weekends.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in the cafeteria varies. Sometimes it's really good, but other times it isn't that good. The bistro is generally always good

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't the best. Some of the students think its cool to leave trash around the bathroom and lobbies. Also, there is urine on the toilets every now and again, but other than that it is not too bad.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: EP the freshman male dorm is nasty and dirty. The restrooms always have urine on the seat at all times. none of the freshmen seem to care about the residence halls.

2 College Senior

Academics: There is little funding and few staff for the chemisty or biology programs at Cumberland. The labs themselves are outdated, and the school does not seem to have any plans of updating them any time soon. The professors are very passionate however and that is what saves the entire science program.

3 College Senior

Academics: There is no engineering program here, but other than that there is a wide array of majors. the professors and advisors are very encouraging of your continuing education. The registration process is easy and basically the same for everyone, but the workload depends on the major you choose.The most popular study area is probably No matter what major you choose, after your general requirement calsses are done, your with the same four or five professors over and over until you graduate.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Cumberland has a brand new soccer stadium on campus. It also has excellent facilites for all sport, especially baseball! There is a refurbished dorm called the "learning commons" that was turned intlo study rooms, computer labs. and testing rooms that allow students a quiet place to focus while not having to retain complete silence like the library. Historic Memorial hall is also very beautiful and host the science labs.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: There are no campus traditions and few campus events that are not hosted by greek organizations. The library is great, the athletic centers are top notch, and many students hang out socially in the learning commons or the cafeteria.
