2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I get approved for loans but not grants. My parents make barely over the pay scale so I don't qualify for pell. They can't pay for college with their incomes. My parents drive vehicles that are both nearly 10 years old and they don't live above the means. It is just hard. My brother is still in jr. high and the schools are always wanting money for this and for that. Being right over the income lines exempts them from everything, including reduced school lunches for my brother. They always have to pay a full price (nothing reduced) because of that stupid income level. My mom is a diabetic and has lots of doctor bills. My dad is one of those people who help everybody and never takes payment. I know he is doing what God wants him to do and I'm glad for that. I just wish it would help them pay bills!

Campus Food: Don't eat very much on campus.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Everything closes early, so there's no real convenience when you're hungry after a certain time. There aren't many restaurants either, so choices are limited.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Honestly, there aren't many parties at this school, but when there are, they can get big with lots of people. I think the party scene can have a positive and negative impact on student experience. You get to meet new people, but the use of alcohol and possibly other drugs can hinder a positive experience. College isn't all about partying, but parties can be the hub of the social scene.

4 College Junior

Administration: Campus strictness isn't really much of a thing on campus. Yes, you must sign any visitors in at the dorms, but that has no real affect on academics. It can enhance social abilities.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is stressful and confusing and often there isn't anyone to actually help you understand what's going on. I personally struggle with money issues, and there was just so much paperwork to fill out. My tip would be to stay ahead of the paperwork and get it done sooner rather than later.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There's a wide variety, but weekend times are limited. The menus convenient and provide different options, but sometimes Duke's Diner is repetitive in their meals. The meal plan/flex dollars are really helpful when you don't go to the Grill or the diner, but you can still use them at the C-store.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great and totally convenient!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Great cheap apartments all around the campus!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I do not eat off of campus because it is expensive or just far away. I do not have a car.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Visitation is probably one of the most frustrating things since there are certain times people can visit and no one can stay the night. However, other than that, the Dean a very lovely woman and super helpful if you ever have an issue. She is very good at enforcing rules and making the campus feel safe!

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: few parties. Cops are always crashing them. I do not even bother to go to them anymore.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is not that expensive but it is still a lot of money to make if you are providing for yourself. The on campus jobs only pay 7.25 an hour which is not a lot. I barely make enough to pay for my tuition and was forced to take out loans to pay for my first year.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are not a lot of healthy options which makes it difficult. I am an athlete so fried food and high carbs/calorie foods are not what I am looking for. I need a lot of protein which is not a lot of options on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The RA's are a great resource for where to go for classes and just regular living assistance. The way they choose your roommate is very well. I came from out of state and was randomly paired up with someone and we seemed to get along very well. Everything is clean which is always a plus. The girls are friendly as long as you are friendly back. (The Golden Rule!). The visiting hours are from 10am to 2am which is probably the only issue that I have. I wish the visitors were not so strict and that they could stay the night. Security is very good on campus as well as in the dorms. Clean bathrooms, the water is always hot and I never have to wait long for it to warm up.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is this giant complex of apartments just east of campus and I know of a few people who live there. There are also complexes on each side of campus and all have college students who live in them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Jerry's is sort of a lone wolf IHOP. It's open 24/7 and has breakfast all the time. You can always find people there eating and working late night on homework.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The Dean of Students is a great lady. She is most definitely there for the students, and mostly everyone in administration are friendly.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party, so I don't know the quality of the party scene on campus. I've heard about some here or there, but that's it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Go talk to the bursar, or whoever you need to to get the info and aid you received. They will do what they can and are there to help.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Almost always it's better than your typical caf quality. There can be days when it's not something you want, but the grill makes up for that. If you don't want what the caf is serving, you can go to the C-Store or Grill, which is a sort of 4 different types of food restaurant.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: With 4 (soon to be 5) dorms to choose from, there is definitely a tier system. Everyone has their own version on which is on top, but overall they are fine. Nothing overly fancy, some have a sink in the dorm, which is a lot more handy than you would think.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I dont live off campus. Its easier for me to stay on campus because I do not own a car.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Tiny town means not many late night places or much variety besides fast food and all american food.

4 College Junior

Administration: Strictness is the strongest when it comes to student housing, alcohol and smoking. Anything else, its pretty chill. Officers are great.
