Students Often Come From

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Since Rust is a small school with a population size of a little more than 1,000 students, students get one-on-one time with the teachers, and the classroom size is typically no larger than 25 students. This allows the students to focus and get extra attention. The workload may be heavy, but you have more than enough time to meet the deadlines. One thing that isn't heavy is the parking situation. Generally, there are plenty of spaces for students, probably because most students walk. On the other hand, if it's public transit you want, you won't find it here. 

The small atmosphere, while helpful when it comes to academics and parking, can be stifling when it comes to the social aspects of the school. Holly Springs isn't ripe with nightlife like other college towns, so students have to seek out entertainment. Also, with small size comes small options—as is the case when it comes to dining selection. There's only one cafeteria on campus, and if it's healthy food you're looking for, you are out of luck.
