4 College Student

Overall Experience: My high school experience's have been very great. I've got to meet new people, and learn new things. One thing that I can say is, being in high school is not easy. There are some challenges that you have to face along the way. At the end of completing your four years of high school, you'll see how much you have grown. At the beginning, you'll think you'll be in high school forever. Quickly you'll find out how fast it passed, and that you're growing into a mini adult. I thank my teachers for pushing me my four years in high school, because if they didn't, I wouldn't be the student that I am today. Now that I am a little old I am starting to appreciate all the challenges I've had to face in order to get where I am today.

Overall Experience: You must find a well rounded professor for the class you want and match it against yourself. A lot of instructors are experts on one particular part of what they teach, and everything else is just glazed over, but you have to know it. Some professors make you do a ton of work for little reward or feedback then make you do a test you couldn't be ready for. Some make up their style as they go. Some have been teaching so long or they just do it so well, they're naturally inspiring. You must do research on the professor before you register.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school doesn't help a lot when it comes to career opportunities unless you're graduating and even then it's mostly on you to have most or all the info.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything is smaller than it looks on the websites and video tours. The apartments offer your own kitchen you only have to share a bathroom with a roommate. The dorms connected to the eateries are for one person, but they put two people in there. Take a tour or go to the housing fair before choosing.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is so diverse, but not for everyone. Some are all parties, some are a lot of work, find one you like or just find a solid group of your own.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not much for me to say when I'm not an athlete.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is a school where you definitely have to find the right combination to be successful and happy. By that I mean, discover the right friends, decide if some friends are really good to have around, find the right class, find the right professor for that class make sure they're good for your sanity, balance your time, and try to sleep. It can be really difficult with random rules and inconvenient deadlines, but it's doable. You probably will never be able to stay early for EVERYTHING the school throws at you, but you will be so scared of all the vagueness of the warnings you get, you'll try not to be late.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not had many professors that I liked. I dealt with them all accordingly, but they made classes much more of a hassle than they needed to be. Not many of them actually care about their students, because they didn't try to learn our names or try to talk with us. I've had quite a few professors that just show up, talk at us, and leave. On the other hand, I had a few professors that were easy to talk to and I enjoyed, but for my gen eds, it was mostly the opposite problem.

Overall Experience: I think this heavily depends on your major. My program is thinking about setting us up with internships, but I'm not sure they will be able to accomplish this by the time I graduate.

Health & Safety: We have an organization called C Us that will walk you around campus if you're alone or if it's late, which is always a great option to have. I barely feel unsafe on campus, but I make sure to be with at least one other person most of the time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are decent compared to how other dorms on other college campuses are. The honors dorm I was in was for the most part, nice. I am in an on campus apartment now, but those are nearly impossible to get into and are expensive. Then again, everything is expensive.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know a handful of people in Greek Life and I have heard a lot of positive things about all of it. I know more names of sororities than what kind of sport teams we have on campus.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: I cannot name a single person I know that has gone to a football game at my school, let alone any other sport. I have met one person that was involved in a sport, and then the rest of the time, school spirit comes from wearing our colors and clothing from the bookstore and that's about it. Most of our money goes into athletics: the football field, the teams, etc, but sports are highly unpopular here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The best part about my experience at this school so far are the friends I have met and the place I have worked at. Even then, my on campus job might be bought out by a third party company this summer. I have had a few enjoyable classes, but most of the classes dedicated to my major and the required gen-eds I've taken have not been all that beneficial to me. I feel like I have to recall information from my freshman year of high school to be successful. Either that or buy $400 worth of books out of my own pocket. Which, I suppose, is a struggle at every college. However, I feel as though over half of my professors have been difficult to deal with. They don't communicate well with the students, or they have a syllabus that's literally 20 pages long and make it impossible for anyone to actually make any sense of. Also, I pay so much to go to a school with limited resources. I'm taking online classes but the website is always down, or the internet cuts out in the middle of my tests, and everything on campus is never open when you need it to be. I appreciate the experiences I've had so far and how they have helped me grow as a person, but I do not believe I'm becoming more knowledgeable by being here. I'm just trying to work with the system and get an A by jumping through my professors' hoops.

Athletics: Our football program is worst of sports

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: i really like my first year of college. it felt like hime.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I would not go out alone at night, or out alone off campus. We get emails about all the crime alerts on campus and within a 5 mile radius of campus. I get tales 1-2 emails a weak of robbery.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors really know what they are talking about and are very passionate.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek Life, but I've heard a lot of people talk about it. They are always advertising their events. And on campus, there is a strict no hazing policy that is heavily enforced.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the overall atmosphere of the school. However, sometimes at night I fear for my safety. I've been followed several times and I's not terribly safe off campus either.
