4 College Junior

Administration: For the most part, the administration handles things well.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food's not bad but the variety is limited. Some of the better options are only available at certain times which is also frustrating.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Millersville does not offer a very wide variety of financial aid options and the options that are available can be difficult to obtain.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Certain dorms are closer to the main buildings than others which means that distance to facilities such as class rooms and dining halls varies.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school gives out scholarships, but it is better to look for independent scholarships. They will be worth more money and easier to get.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food can always be better, I just with there was more things open on the weekends closer to the north end of campus. Also, the money alotment for breakfast should be bigger, because $4 does NOT cut it. Coffee and danishes are great, but the only healthy things on campus are wraps that are okay and salads that are wayyyyy too subpar.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The 'on-campus' appartments like Brookwood and Wellness are getting better, quality wise. They are closer to campus, but just slightly less expensive than residence halls. Cartlidge is newer and much more popular, as well as more expensive. Cottage should be torn down and rebuilt, but there are plenty of other off-campus housing options besides these that are closer to Lancaster and a bit cheaper. It all depends on what you're looking for.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: We're not a big party school, but we know how to have a great time. It's not hard to find 21+ friends who can buy you things, but a lot of people will go to frat/sororrity parties and have fun there. The sport houses also know how to have a good time. BUT you will NEED to go out with a group of people you trust because there are always bad things that happen. Always take precautions when having a night out, no matter where you go.

3 College Freshman

Administration: MU is an alochol free campus, but not considered dry anymore. They will not use action against a legal adult (21) who has been drinking returning to a dorm. However, if a RA finds evidence of alcohol or drugs in the dorms, they stay with you and call the borough police, not campus police. The PA 'Good Samaritan' law (if you and a freind are intoxicated but your friend needs medical attention, because you are helping them you will not be prosecuted if you are a minor) apparently does not apply here. The judicial system at MU will still penalize you big time if you are a minor caught drinking.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great in the traditional dorms with great RA's and a close-knit community of people who will support you. However, the housing office is tricky with requests of things like single rooms and moving off campus. The suite style living was new to campus this year (14-15) and we had MANY unscheduled fire drills. The new suites are opening in the fall, and we expect similar issues. The prices are not unreasonable, but I cannot wait until my friends and I can get a house together.

Scholarships: I wish there were more financial aid options available and I also wish financial aid was more helpful with certain issues, questions or complications that come with paying for college.

3 College Freshman

Administration: So much better than high shcool.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Haven't gotten much at all in the way of financial aid. Millersville isn't the most expensive school out there, but I still need a lot of help.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't have a meal plan this semester, but the meals I've eaten on campus haven't been great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm a commuter so I don't live on campus, but visiting friends dorms, they're pretty small. Not the best.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never had to go to the health center but I heard that it is very convenient to grab small things like band aids. As for safety, I feel extremely safe on campus, there are emergency call buttons all around campus and the campus police make me feel safe, you can call them if you need them. There is little to no campus crime here.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many local places that can be reached by the busing system or by car. The is a cafe right on campus as well. Some of the food is pricey for college students however that's how most off campus places are. There is plenty of variety as well.

Administration: I have never had a bad situation with the administration. However, I am basing this rating on the fact that almost every time I park I see someone get ticketed. Tickets are $50 and students are only given a week to pay anything back and that is outrageous. Students are broke enough as it is and should not be ticketed over such a small issue.

Scholarships: The process for financial aid was a hassle and they didn't give as much as I had hoped even though I'm in great financial need. Fall 2015 was horrible because I was never told I needed additional forms or how to clear my schedule so classes were almost dropped. The only tip to give is to fill out the forms as early as possible to prevent classes from being dropped.

Campus Food: The food at the Upper Deck sits like a rock in your stomach and isn't the greatest overall. However, nothing else has disappointed me when it comes to food. The Campus Grill and the Sugar Bowl are both amazing and my favorite places to go. The Bistro, Anchor, and Galley, and the cove are also very good. Each place has something different so there is plenty of variety. There is a Starbucks on campus that I go to a lot and its very convenient to go to. FLEX is extremely helpful for getting things like Starbucks or items not on the meal plan. However, I think that more should be available on the meal plan.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many places to choose from with off campus housing, there's Wellness and Brookwood which are owned by Millersville but still considered off campus. Then there's Cottage, and E-Courts and also nice houses and apartments all along the streets you can choose from.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I do respect the campus police because they are just doing they're job to keep us safe, but just cause this is a college campus in the middle of a rural suburb doesn't mean that they need to be on top of us. It's a college so there are going to be parties and they shouldn't waste their time stopping them because it will just cause major resistance between them and students. I understand they do it to keep us safe but they need to ease up on alcohol because this is a college and we're not in high school anymore we can handle ourselves.
