College Freshman

Athletics: These things don't apply. There are no teams.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Prescott is a small town. Very cute.

College Freshman

Technology: I don't live on campus. Also, some degrees (like mine) are off campus degrees, so students need to provide their own wireless access or go to cafes unless they want to go to school every day. Many students study from out of state.

College Freshman

Diversity: This is a small school - not a major university. Diversity amongst major universities can be compared more easily.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The majors are geared toward creative thinking, ecology, social justice.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have toured the school, met counselors and staff as well as students. This year will be my first year at the school. The community is fantastic.

College Junior

Greek Life: We do not have Greek Life, there is no interest in having Greek Life on campus

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have club sports like skiing and mountain biking, and many students facilitate sports off campus like ultimate frisbee, softball or outdoor sports (rock climbing, hiking, etc). But we have a lack of organized sports, which is not terribly detrimental for the students at Prescott College

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus is strict with problems involving use of drug and alcohol but are very lenient in student-related problems and are open to hearing student voice's to any problems happening on campus

College Senior

Athletics: There are no official teams or sports at Prescott College. Students will have events or play games based on who is interested at the time. All students get a membership to the YMCA where you can participate in exercise classes or intramural sports. Most students who enjoy athletic activities do outdoors stuff like biking, camping, rockclimbing, and hiking. Prescott has a lot of great outdoor areas to explore.

3 College Senior

Technology: The library has mac and PC computers. The macs tend to fill up the fastest but there tend to always be PC computers available. There is a tech lab that is a quiet place to work that doesn't get utilized nearly enough by students. Most students tend to use their own computers. You can rent out laptops if yours breaks or you need one for a short period of time.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing has been relatively easy in the past but I hear it is getting slightly more difficult. There are lots of apartments and old cute houses available. It is definitely much cheaper prices than I am used to coming from a big city. When I got to Prescott, I was able to sign a lease and move in right away. My landlord has been incredible. I definitely recommend renting from landlords as opposed to renting companies. I have heard bad things about multiple rental companies in Prescott. Parking is easy in most areas and there is most likely a grocery store in your neighborhood.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: *I am going to preface this by saying that I am a food snob.* The better restaurants in town tend to be more expensive (for a college budget). There are plenty of places to get a good beer, burger, or pizza, but other than that, most places miss the mark. I was originally bummed about this but then I learned to save money to go to the good places and how to cook well.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I've seen people participate in drug culture but I can't say too much about it because I don't really participate in it. Prescott College students tend to appreciate good beer. New students can go a little wild but it doesn't seem much different from any other college. There are definitely environments that promote drug usage or promote non-usage. You can situate yourself wherever you feel comfortable. I haven't experienced much peer pressure.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security is around at night and I have been told that they can escort you places if you feel unsafe. I personally have never felt unsafe so I have never utilized that service. People leave valuables all over the place and things don't get stolen. I have gotten way too comfortable doing this and have to remind myself not to be so nonchalant whenever I leave Prescott. If the police are ever called, they are there almost instantaneously.

4 College Senior

Majors: I am under the Cultural & Regional Studies Department where I am majoring in Social Justice (a major I designed). I love the fact that I had the ability to design my own major and take course I wanted to take instead of 2 years of general education courses. Everything I have learned has been super exciting! My studies have taken me all over Arizona, to California, and even Kenya. I can't say enough good things!
