3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you like cheap beer and partying with dudes, it works. If not, try to find some friends to casually drink with instead.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A ton of restaurants thanks to the Sturgist Rally make off-campus eating very nice.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of different options that are usually cheap and work pretty well for college students.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Other than a few unnecessary parking tickets I've heard about, campus security does a good job. ResLife stresses the rules, but does very little to enforce them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Other than being overpriced, it's okay. The worst part is trying to find something healthy and good-tasting to eat. Generally lettuce and other healthy items are given little attention and therefore taste awful.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are a lot of smart kids here and it is a cheap school, so very little scholarships are offered.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As with most things in college, it is overprice, but it is about what you would expect from campus living.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the campus seems safe and ive only heard rumors of rape at the frat houses but nothing was proved and it was always the same girl

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys outnumber the girls by a lot, but most are nice so its not uncommon for a group of 1 girl and 5 guys to be hanging out. the guys complain about the ratio and that the girls wont date them but that's only because they're to shy to ask a girl out.

Greek Life: The houses are pretty run down, they are all huge partyers, the frat guys are usually nice but the sororities are cliquey and bitchy.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The only people that care about the sports team are the members.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: off campus living is almost half the cost of living on campus, assuming you have roommates and accept its not gonna be a 5star hotel.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Frats are good if you like cheap beer and getting hit on by drunk guys. otherwise find friends with a house and have parties with just your friends. your not supposed to drink in the dorms but people do.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's plenty of good sit down restaurants, however there's almost no quick non-fast food places, and nothing good is open past 10pm.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The actual police do not patrol, only campus safety does. The only real problems are went drunk locals wander onto campus, but even then the police station is only a few blocks away.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was a simple online process for first semester and automatic second.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The vending machines and miner's shack are expensive. The dining hall has good food if you're creative, such as adding veggies from the salad bar to the pastas, otherwise finding healthy food can be challenging.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: first year the dorms are typical but the apartments are overpriced for second years. The required meal plans are expensive, the food isn't great and the kitchens are not fully stocked so students must bring their own pots and pans.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't looked at houses in specific because i'm allowed to stay at my parents instead. However, I know of a few apartment buildings and houses close to campus. The prices on them could be high but hopefully the home would have a few rooms to share with roommates who would help split the cost. I haven't tried to obtain information from the school about off campus housing but i'm sure someone would be available with more information.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mines lies in a decent location of rapid making a few main roads easily accessible and reasonably close. Each location will have at least a few food options most ranging for a meal to cost $7-$15. McDonald's and other fast food might result in slightly cheaper. Student discounts apply at some which usually includes a free drink which might now be advertised, so knowing ahead of time is beneficial. Downtown could be more expensive but it brings a variety of cultural foods such as Mexican, Italian and American.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had to deal with campus safety very often, other than seeing whoever issue a few parking tickets. However, if I lived on campus I could be more susceptible to seeing them on duty. I'm not sure where the boundaries lie with noise levels, drinking and those sorts of things and how strict the rules are in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm sure if I were to seek more information from people on campus about financial aide, I could most likely receive plenty of the necessary information. With the help of my parents and the knowledge I obtained in high school, i'm able to accomplish getting the financial aide I need; however, I'm trying to lower the amount i'll have to pay back by finding grants and scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not being a resident on campus puts me in the situation where I don't have to find food at campus very often. I have found vending machines in most buildings to satisfy me when needed and I did enjoy having Einstein's for breakfast occasionally.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of small restaurants around town, but most of them don't go along with the school meal plan

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration on campus is very nice and easy to get along with.
