What I like about the college is the friendly atmosphere. Even though I'm a sophomore at the college, my first and second year has been good. The teachers are helpful for any concerns you have. Also the teachers care for the students along with, having that guaranteed one on one time if I need help. The only thing I would change, is to make it bigger. Like save up enough funds to create a actual football team, or increase the popularity of rugby. The reason why is so it can bring more attraction and fun events to go to on the weekends. Also some more dorms too.

Living on campus is a lot of fun, it gets you involved in the events on campus because it is easy to get to and reminders are everywhere. The best to worst options to me are New Residence Hall, Centennial, University Place, Bearcat Village, Lide, Williamston, and then Brookside. The social atmosphere is great, there are people everywhere to talk to and it is very easy to meet new people and find new friends around campus. The cost is not bad, less than a lot of big universities. The housing process is very easy and simple if you sign up at the right time, because like many universities are, it is first come first serve. All of the campus housing is pretty much the same distance from class buildings which makes it pretty fair to everyone living on campus.

I have not attended many varsity sports games, but the ones that I have attended are very fun and exciting. A good amount of students and non-students attend these games. The athletes are definitely supported and cheered on. Our school spirit is great, we have a club that travels to all of the games, gets dressed up in spirit gear, and goes out to support our teams. The athletic facilities are very very nice and are for athletes and others who just want to exercise. Everyone working in the athletic facilities are super friendly and very willing to help anyone.
