5 College Senior

Diversity: We are a very diverse campus and try to appreciate everyone for their own beliefs and background.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs are only available at parties as far as I know. I am not a big party person, but I have noticed on the website that there is a fine for any student(s) caught for smuggling drugs or alcohol into the dorms or on campus, so drug safety is pretty high.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had class sizes that are as big as 20 to 30 students to a professor and then classes as small as 7 or 8 students to a professor, but the class size makes giving presentations a lot easier. Classes always have a lot of substance and therefore they have great quality to each student's academic program. Students are responsible for choosing and organizing their four-year plan for their academic program and they can choose to take their classes online, hybrid, or face-to-face but they must be aware of the class rotation as well as financial aid.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The cost of housing is the most expensive payment for students living on campus, but meal plans are added in so they cost about as much. The dorms are up to date as much as possible except for the boy's dorm Delzell which is looking at being remodeled this August, so that's exciting.

5 College Senior

Athletics: We have a variety of athletic activities, but school spirit and facilities are just as top-notch as our teams!

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Security is always willing to give students rides and tips on how to stay safe around campus. I personally do not walk alone at night, but during the day I do, and I always try to use the buddy system when I can!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Peru State is my dream college! It's affordable and my home away from home as a future teacher!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes were exactly what I was looking for. They are big enough so group discussions are enjoyable but also small enough where the professor has the ability to learn a students name

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are really great about bringing prospective employers in and having students visit and learn from them

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I live slightly off the main campus and I feel safe walking to and from classes

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've stayed in many dorms and Peru isn't the nicest but it also isn't the worst.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I might be a little bias since I am on the Women' Cross Country team, but I feel like the athletes are very good about supporting other athletes and non-athletes.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are very friendly and willing to help. The college also has a very friendly atmosphere

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never heard of rapes occurring on campus. That does not mean that it has not happened, I just have not heard of any. Campus security can easily be reached, and will come pick you up and take you place to place on campus if you call them and ask them to. I have heard of people stealing people's possessions in the dorms. Both times police has gotten involved, and both times the possessions were returned to the person who was missing them. I feel very safe and protected on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors always make sure you know the material and feel comfortable in the class. They have study groups before tests. A lot of professors give extra credit to those who go above and beyond. The classes are very challenging. The only thing that is terrible about Peru and the classes is that it is hard to get the classes that you need. The classes always overlap each other so you are stuck with the minimum or less credits that are needed. Then you have to take online classes that are really expensive. I do like the class sizes. They're very small.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are people on campus willing to help with job applications, interviews, etc. There is a building that will tell you what internships are available for you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings need updated. The showers in the individual rooms are disgusting no matter how much you clean them. The whole dorm building itself isn't kept up on cleaning. I think there should be a kitchen in each dorm building but there isn't. There needs to be a stove/oven and microwave in each building. I do like how you can't hear your neighbors beside you, below you, or above you. The sounds are pretty muffled. The RA's do take care of any problems that arise. I just think the buildings need to be redone. A few times we didn't have hot water because pipes broke. Electricity also goes out a lot.

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A lot of people only go to Peru for sports. I get really annoyed that the athletic people are only at college for sports. They do not care about their school work. The school spirit is not great.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Peru State because it very small and friendly. The teachers genuinely care about every student. The teachers make sure that the students understand the material being learned. The professors also have a lot of open office hours. The students can go in and get help on any homework whenever it is needed. I like how with my art program the professor has a lot of time to focus on every individual student. He makes sure that everyone's art work is the best it can be. I like how the school is really small and affordable. Everyone at Peru State is really friendly.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Peru is a small NAIA school, so the athletics a reminiscent of a large high school when it comes to attendance and what not. The booster club is great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a nice small community. All the professors and other faculty are helpful and friendly. You are truly able to develop great relationships with a great deal of people.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors are experts making it easier to communicate with them
