Located right off of I-40, Hickory is a relic. Immediately off of I-40, heading towards campus you'll be seeing just about everything there is in your regular driving rotation. There's some shopping and a game center in the mall, but if you're not looking to spend money you're out of luck. We have some rec fields to go play a pick up game of whatever, but that involves investing in a ball (and books are expensive). I was very surprised to find out, my first time being at this school, that so many local people just loved this place. In three days I must have heard at least four "oh my son/daughter went there! Back when it was Lenoir-Rhyne College!"

Both Ends of the Spectrum – There are a few computer labs across campus but they get really crowded right before classes and during breaks between classes. Printing is awful! There is never paper in the printers in 3 out of 4 of the computer labs. The only reliable printer that has paper continuously is the library, but the library is not far from classes. However, the printer breaks down a lot in the library but there are 5 printers in the library but it's a hassle switching between floors because the two downstairs break down often do to heavy usage. All the computer labs are extremely slow with exception to the library's computers. I would definitely suggest going there is you need to print something right before class; the other labs can take up to 15 minutes to load the start screen. I would recommend printing things the day before rather than right before class though. 1 out of 2 times you'll be late if you wait before class. Laptops work great and the wifi is usually reliable. Only on rare occasions are there any problems and it's mainly in the dorms which there are ethernet outlets available, but you have to bring your own cord. During my freshman year I only noticed wifi problems 5 times the whole year. But the network does mess up occasionally. Wireless is available all throughout campus which is a huge plus! But there is no wireless printing so if need to print something you have to log on a campus computer.

It's Hickory. There's one or two "clubs" for students to go to. However, you have to be over 21 to get into them. There are quite a few bars, but again, after 9/10pm you have to be 21 or over to get inside. So, for freshman and sophomores, the options are limited. However, CAB (Campus Activities Board) keeps things interesting on campus, and there is usually pretty cool stuff to do on most weekends. Their raffles and games offer GREAT prizes too (like flat screen TVs, iPads, mini fridges, etc.) The Greek Life also has some great parties!
