1 College Junior

Athletics: After orientation, I was not under the impression that there were any sports at this university.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Even though it's very challenging, this school will give me the best preparation to become a successful nurse.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love that this school has the accelerated bachelors in nursing program but it is definitely tough. From day 1, you hit the ground running and there is no time for slacking off! I do think it is worth the cost and hard work but you have to be prepared from the beginning. The staff is very helpful and they want you to succeed, which is always good. I would definitely choose SMU over other schools due to three things: reputation, class size, and high standard of education.

Overall Experience: The faculty are life changing, they will inspire you to become a better person!

3 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

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.
