Health & Safety: One of the best things on campus is our security. They're great. personable, and effective at their jobs. They keep us updated anytime there might be a possible threat, and they're always on the move to make sure our campus is secure. I hardly ever feel unsafe on campus. If you are feeling threatened in some way, they will respond immediately to your call, take action, and make sure that you get where you need to go safely.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Had great and caring professors. They definitely don't look at you as just another number. Class sizes vary on your major and the course.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School places heavy emphasis on internships and jobs. They hold job fairs fairly often as well as seminars on how to get you and your resume as job ready as possible. This school is great in helping you get into the career you want if you know how to utilize their programs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Here's the breakdown:

Cost: About $9000 a year for room and board at time of posting. That's actually pretty good in comparison to many other schools. This gives you a room with one roommate, two desks, two closets, a daily cleaning service staff, and the 19 meal a week option. As a freshman, this is not optional unless you are a commuter.

Value: Depends on the dorm. Are you a presidential/provost scholar? Stay on campus, my friend. You get the better dorming arrangements. Other people, move out during sophomore or junior year, get a roommate or two, get the lower meal plan price.

Dorm Quality:

Jubilee hall: Its nice if you like being treated like a child with strict curfews and forced meetings that have no importance in your life. The rooms range from small to spacious, depending on where you live. Communal bathrooms only. There's a nice microwave room that gets dirty fairly quickly, but thank goodness for that cleaning staff. Working AC/Heat. Problems get fixed fairly quick. Freshman Females Only. No visitation.

Crosthwaite: Actually looks like a barely renovated prison. Haven't lived there, but I believe there's no curfew. Communal bathrooms only. Seems somewhat clean overall. Male visitation allowed within limits. Upperclassmen Female Only.

New Livingstone: Imagine a county male prison. I hear the freshmen male dorms are nice. I wouldn't know, they're not allowed visitation. Upperclassmen males are allowed visitation and their rooms are tragic. Almost everything's broken, and each room makes you feel oddly dirty and tainted each time you walk in. Communal bathrooms only. Pray for them.

Shane Hall: Co-ed Upperclassmen dorm. A lot of presidential and provost scholars live there. Bathroom shared with extended suitemates only. Rooms range from somewhat spacious to spacious. Pretty clean, microwave for each section of dorm hall. Visitation allowed.

Greek Life: Many have been on suspension but are coming back, and you can see that their presence is revitalizing the campus a bit. I can't fairly judge since they are only just returning, but there's promise.
