Residence halls are okay. The only good residence halls are the upperclassmen halls of South and North. The amenities in the upperclassmen halls include air conditioning/heating, full size fridge, microwave, living room, and more. The freshman halls are the oldest buildings, have no air conditioning, infested with bugs/mold, and desperately need renovations. Resident halls are all located together and are not that far away from classes and the dining hall. No one really uses the lounges and are mostly quite. The RAs are never around and never help you if you need anything (they purposely hide from their residents). The residence life staff are not good at pairing students with roommates causing many fights among residents. Students steal laundry and don't respect the residence hall or residents living in them. Overall, housing is okay as long as you are in the upperclassmen halls.

I think the dorms on this campus are good for the students and for the size it works. There was a new set of dorms recently built that are very nice and are really like apartment style and they are great! The best part is the residence halls for the most part are close to classes and to the main buildings, which helps when people are running late, they can still be on time. The social atmosphere is great! everyone is really easy to get along with and I have met many great friends in the halls and almost 24/7 we are in the lobby together when we don't have class talking, watching TV and having a good time with each other!

This is a good school for students who want a small community feel. Students here are able to form a relationship with their professors and teachers. Th Academics at this school are good. The professors care about their students and get to know them. You are a person, not a number. This school also has a grow Performing Arts Program that includes the NDC Falcon Marching Band, Concert Band, Choir, Glee Choir, and a resident Theatre Company. We also have many different clubs and organizations such as Student Government and Biology Club.

Every student also has an opportunity to have a work study job.

Unfortunately, there are some downsides to this school. There are a lot of dumb athletes that attend the terrible athletic program at this school. The program feature over 20 different sports. Though there are many different sports, they don't do very well against other colleges. Coaches of these sports tend to value their sport over a student's academic success causing many students to fail out of the college.

Overall, this is an okay school with good academics and terrible athletics. If I had a chance, I would transfer out of this school.
