Something Always Going on – Whether its a student group or a Friday evening there is always something going on. Most of the campus comes alive and everyone joins in. This makes Hastings unique but also distracting. The facilities are fabulous, the building look old but it is the vintage look that give a certain feel to the campus. The athletic center in the student lounge and the athletic center are both equipped with spectacular machines or everyone to use. The best place on campus is the library, there are rooms that allow student to study or to hold group meetings or to kill time. I love this place, plus there's free coffee!

Since we are such a small town many of the better off-campus dining options are actually in Grand Island, which is about a 25 minute drive. This actually isn't that inconvenient because sometimes it is nice to just get away. Hastings does have some off-campus dining that isn't fast food. I love Papa Ray's. It is the oldest pizza joint in Hastings and is family owned. Awesome wings!

The sports program overshadows everything, to the point of being excessive. Most liberal arts schools are more about the academics, which is the point of attending college anyway but especially so at these schools. This is not the case here. The same year the school cut academic programs they put thousands of dollars into the sports program. They replaced the grass on the football field with turf, replaced the mascot costume despite the original being in good condition and not in need of replacement just to name a couple. We also have enough football players for 5 teams, and most players don't actually see game play until their junior year at least. They are also awarded more scholarships to play than is permitted for other students; the limit on school awarded scholarships is 2, however if you are on the football team you are awarded 3. And even after all this, the football team isn't even very good.
