3 College Junior

Local Area: There isn't a whole going on off campus for students. They don't make it easy to get around for the people who don't have car. Wish there was more to do around the surrounding area.

Off-Campus Dining: So there's only one place outside of the school itself that accepts Bear Bucks (LR currency), and that would be Papa Johns. The plus side is they deliver. The down side is that it's Papa Johns. There's plenty of variety when you call the differences between Bojangles, Taco Bell, McDonalds, Cook Out and Arby's variety. That's not the fault of the school by any means, of course not. It's just a bit disappointing, especially when the cafeteria isn't all that great.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: 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!"

Health & Safety: There have been a few crimes since I've been here. Girl was roofied her first semester here, so definitely kept an eye out, but there was nothing else similar to that happenings since. There aren't fights, but there may be some loud yelling very rarely. I don't feel scared or intimidated, all these guys are harmless if you play your cards right. Our police though can be meh. That was when it was TOO strict, but it has toned down and it's nice. This one does his job, does it well, but let's you do you if you're not a belligerent ass. For standard state police, you'll hear them coming along the road every 20 or so seconds. It's the same with ambulances and firetrucks, so try to get used to that.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Social atmosphere remains moderately unperturbed. You get the occasional drama from the sorority, or someone the fraternity got too drunk and caused a scene. And this is OCCASIONAL. The Greek students are very accepting. They'll all try to indoctrinate them, but keep on being a GDI.

Housing is sporadic, I'm not sure what they've done to separate it like this.

5 College Freshman

Administration: You guys just don't know what to do with the Honor's students, do ya? Either way, I love this school. Wouldn't have it any other way.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Guys, if you're afraid about applying to college, this is your safety net school in North Carolina. Get that FAFSA and scholarship money up, and this place is very laid back. I slacked off quite a bit and am paying for it, but everyone within the school is there to help you. We have a wonderful Dean of students, amazing, understanding professors. The curriculum is a bit easier than what you could expect at, say, UNC, but the class sizes are also smaller. More 1 on 1 with the professors. Registration is a breeze. If you're looking for a safety net, or just want to get the initial "I need ONE acceptance letter to stop freaking out," try here. Laid back.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I've not found one, nor am I looking because it's break.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I screwed the pooch on this one, honestly. I submitted the FAFSA about three times, but kept not hitting that last accept/next/finish button. My advice: if Financial Aid is calling you for things, just head on over and get it fixed in about 10 minutes. Otherwise you may end up $20k in debt Freshman year.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I hope Lenoir-Rhyne staff reads this. I wholeheartedly understand that it's the company (Cisco?) that's in charge of the dining services in the cafeteria, but there must be another way. You have to realize that there will be some people who will refuse to eat it "because it tastes off;" but just as well, there are people who ONLY have cafe to eat, and therefore will simply stomach through it. There is zero flexibility in Bear Bucks, either. I can buy a sandwich that I already can get on meal equivalency, or I can get a pizza that will take up ~1/5 of my Bear Bucks.

We would like to see more options, not just things to satisfy the people who go here now, but simply to bring LR's community together. Give the ID card some more use.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: So when I first came here parties were decent. The occasional (meaning, we had to speculate when it happened... 'cause it did) bust in by security was fine after a while. Unfortunately, and I'm not entirely clear on the details, neither fraternity could have parties for a while, which was boring. In terms of "mass", there's like... 20 people tops. 20 people worth looking at anyway.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing lottery is very easy. I didn't even participate in it (as well as my current roommate) and we were able to get a decent room in F/C. I'd say for the ~$10,000 you're spending to stay here, rent a house. Attention freshmen: Morgan hall sucks ass, try Ike.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: 3/5. I feel safer in my room in the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Had to give 4/5. Lost a point because many are rude.

Off-Campus Dining: The dining prices off-campus is the best. I love going to cracker barrel which is located down the street. The prices don't even exceed 10 dollars.
