College Junior

Greek Life: Fraternities and sororities don't exist on this campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's pretty much fast food unless you have the money to dine out near the plaza.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone comes from different backgrounds and they are very accepting of each other.

College Junior

Party Scene: The party scene is on a word of mouth basis.

4 College Junior

Majors: I had a pretty easy time getting into my program. The transition from my old college went smoothly too.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: It's extremely difficult to get a hold of the financial aid staff here.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is decently attired and they are pretty friendly too.

3 College Junior

Local Area: The scenery is beautiful. Sometimes the locals can be standoffish

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy going to this school. The teachers are great and I'm always learning something new and different.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus. The faculty and officials work hard to keep everyone safe.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at our is okay. We have a cross country club that has about 10 people enrolled in it. Our main focuses are on Archery, and in the gym activities. All students are involved in their workout courses. Whenever we have a cross country event the school in is full support. Our only athletic facility is our on campus gym, which is used very often. I use the gym 2-3 times a weeks.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Near to where i am there is a community college and mostly High schools. Our school does interact a little with the community college but not too much. The larger college are located in Albuquerque and our campus is in Santa Fe, about 55 miles away. The only real attractions in my area, is a couple of nice walking/hiking trails. The scenery is beautiful, especially in the summer time. Our campus is close to a recreational center, and a few time a month a van will take students to go swimming, iceskating, or to play basketball. There are a lot of galleries in town which are free to go to. I have been to many galleries in town and enjoying the art. The local attitude towards students in very encouraging. Actually today I was talking to a woman in a shop and she said that she studied Art of History in college, and she wished me luck at school.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Some of the first places to eat off campus are mainly fast food places that are open very late or 24/7. If you don't have a car it is very hard to get off campus. We have a local bus service, but that only runs till 5:45pm. Eating out can be expensive if you don't eat at fast food places. There is some choice, but it can get a little boring once you've been there a couple of times.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Admission in pretty straight forward. Their is a non-refundable application fee. Background checks to live in housing, transcripts, and eligibility for funding. I never came across anything abnormal in my application. For me the only difficulty was timing. I had about 1 month to apply and submit all of my forms to the school before the deadline. I was planning on waiting a little longer to start college, because of funding, but I decided that waiting was not an option for me.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I absolutely love being on our Studio Arts program. Once all of the introductory courses, and major requirements have been taken the student is free to choses his or her classes. There is a lot of freedom at our school. Experimenting with different materials is always fun. Faculty and staff are always on hand to answer any question regarding Studio Arts. Most our faculty went to our school, so everyone seems to know everyone, it's a very small community. There are also a lot of student worker jobs here on campus. I'm currently working at facilities. I have learnt a lot worker here; how to take care of the buildings, moving offices around, and delivering packages.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Our cafeteria supports local farmers, and all produce is locally grown. We have 4 alternating chiefs and one is from France. There is a lot of variety; salad bar, coffee, juices, hot food, and soups.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is safe. I have lived in the dorms for a year now. All the rooms come with the same set up; two wardrobes, two single beds, two desks and chairs. I've had roommates for the time that I have lived in the dorms, but sometime that can be annoying. Your roommate either appreciates your space or they don't. Also the hallways and common areas can be quite loud at times.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The student is responsible for all of his or her applying for financial aid. I'm always on top of any financial aid that i'm eligible for, but its hard when there are so many applicants.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Living in the dorms, students still break the rules but the Residential Assistants are fellow students and friends and not a lot of punishment happens. Yet when a student gets caught or arrested off campus then the school is immediately contacted and you are asked to leave in a set amount of days.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: We don't have athletics at the school except a class for Cross Country and clubs by students who want to take on the challenge.

5 College Junior

Administration: Our administration does a lot to help students and put students in mind when making decisions towards the school.

Greek Life: I haven't ever personally reviewed Greek life on campus but I am not against it either.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of students who chose off-campus housing over dorm housing just because the city/town is very unique and interesting. The rent is reasonable and before school starts, advisers will help you look for a place off-campus.

5 College Junior

Local Area: My town has lots of different characteristics that make the city unique. The downtown area has many different interesting stores, restaurants and shops that are all in walking distance of each other. The institute I attend is a little ways out of town, but just enough to make quick trips if you ever run out of school or dorm supplies. The locals are very nice to students and also seem very open to meeting them. The atmosphere is different from where I originally come from but I like it and have adjusted to it a great deal.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Very bottom of the barrel. Almost non-existent.
