3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is very expensive to live in the Bay Area, but unfortunately it is your only option as there is no on campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Only a couple options that are within walking distance.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are some bars downtown if you are of age, but Oakland is not the greatest neighborhood for going out.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is very helpful, but can also be very strict

4 College Freshman

5 College Senior

Academics: Professors do a good job of conveying the important information.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Teachers, students, and faculty are all great people.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I will be able to take the NBCOT and become an OTR.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: There are no athletic teams so there are no facilities for that.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Alameda, a city near Oakland, is a surprisingly laid-back and nice place to live. Though it is not considered the safest place to be, the community is relatively nice.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants accessible to the students off-campus are limited, yet enough for the hungry graduate student with a car.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a variety of students on campus, and there are multiple organizations that acknowledge and endorse the diversity of the students.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It was relatively easy to find off-campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As known, Oakland is not the safest place to be walking around. Within the campus facilities, students feel safe. It is wise to have an escort/partner around when walking outside of the campus.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not that emphasized on in Samuel Merritt.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: So far, the physical therapy program seems very exciting and involved. As heard, the first year of the physical therapy doctorate program is very difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Unfortunately, for those who are not economically disadvantaged yet are in still need of monetary assistance, there is a severe lack of scholarships. Mostly, I had to pull out loans.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics on the Samuel Merritt campus are severely lacking. As it is a medical sciences-based university, there is not much focus on the athletics aspect.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus strictness at Samuel Merritt is enough to protect the overall well-being of the students, but not overbearing to the point where students cannot enjoy their academic and social lives. Academically, I believe the faculty expect the students to put in their best efforts to study and understand the material (e.g. to come to class and to be curious), but are approachable and relational. I don't see underage drinking because at Samuel Merritt, all students are graduate students, so most (if not all) will be of age. Drug use is not visibly prominent.

3 College Junior

Majors: Student biochemistry research. paid 12.00 an hour

5 College Junior

Diversity: Sacramento is a very diverse city and college campus.
