College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live in off-campus housing so I cannot fully answer these questions.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The nearest three are Subway, Bears Den, and Papa Johns which are all great and cheap!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I never really attend "parties," but on campus events such as concerts are always a great time!

College Freshman

Administration: I don't spend much time on campus due to two jobs, but I know the campus police and other administrators do not tolerate illegal acts.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My first semester was a hassle. My FASFA was very messed up and I was told I wouldn't receive anything but it all got straightened out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have actually never eaten in the café, but everything in the student center and library is great!

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a few apartment complexes close by others you will need to drive.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Usually a party every weekend and welcome week.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The things that are illegal are enforced. The other things may get you in trouble or may not.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was easy when going through the internet.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are certain meal plans where you can eat in the student center and the caf. The cafeteria doesn't have good food most of the time. The sandwich line is always the freshest. The student center closes early and has short hours on the weekends. The food there is reasonable. The deli in Burdick is the best we have.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are like their own set of apartments. The air conditioners and heating systems don't always work and there is a possibility that the plumbing of the building could start venting into your air conditioning system. The social environment is great. There are co-ed and all girl and boy halls. Housing is simple to apply for by computer.

College Junior

Greek Life: I have no rating because I am not part of Greek Life. However, it's frustrating they get special treatment while other students who are not part of Greek Life are pushed aside.

Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived anywhere off-campus so I have no rating.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Since Conway is a rather close-knit area, food is always nearby and very convenient. The best places to eat in Conway are Saigon, the Marketplace, Cracker Barrel, IHOP, Zaza's, etc. There is, of course, pizza delivery right across the street from campus and many fast food chains, so late night snacks are easy to find.

Party Scene: I don't party so I honestly have nothing to say about the nightlife in Conway.

4 College Junior

Administration: I honestly feel having a police station on campus is extremely helpful and comforting. All the officers are extremely nice, too! Just the other day around 3 in the morning, I was in the library studying for a final. An officer was doing his routine rounds of the facility, and I coughed due to a dry throat and sheer exhaustion. This officer kindly backtracked and gave me a piece of mint gum to help ease my cough. He really made my night!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I honestly have nothing bad to say about financial aid except that they always require the same forms every year even if my information doesn't change. If I don't turn those forms in, I don't get my scholarships. It's a hassle to remember, especially when summer starts and I return to my hometown. I always have to scramble to fill them out and get them in the mail in order to be able to afford college the next year.

Campus Food: The most frustrating thing about campus dining is the whole process. The lines are too long in both the cafeteria and the student center, and if students only have an hour for lunch in between classes, they have to scarf their food down or eat it during class.

I understand there are health standards for dining in order to keep students "healthy," but the portions in the cafeteria are not enough to feed a hungry college student. There are many days where I have to continuously get back in line and wait just to fill my belly. College students don't get fat because of what they eat at school; they get fat because of what they eat OUTSIDE campus (and probably because serving size is so small, albeit probably the recommended daily size, that students have to eat again and again to be full.

Campus Housing: The communal bathrooms in the dorms are absolutely disgusting, and by no means the fault of the janitorial system. They do the best job they can, but girls and boys both do not know how to properly pick up after themselves. There's always been a problem with the laundry situation; some of the things people washing the laundry machines make me never want to stick my personals in there. I don't think they ever get cleaned and disinfected.

The housing process is lacking. I once signed the housing lease a few months before my best friend, and they wouldn't let us room together because we didn't sign them at the EXACT SAME TIME, even though we had already been matched up in the roommate selection process. Talk about inconvenient! Also, there are so many other things on campus that could be improved (definitely housing) but the school keeps putting money into Greek Life, and those not in Greek Life get to watch as sororities and fraternities get brand new, state of the art living quarters. Just because students aren't part of Greek Life does not mean they deserve to have their needs to be pushed aside for those who are part of it. It's a completely unfair system.

Athletics: I'm not one for exercise but we have a great gym on campus. I also don't really understand sports that much but that doesn't mean I don't love to go anyway.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Don't really know all my friends live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I would much rather eat off campus for the simple fact that if I want a pizza for six dollars, it'll feed me for two meals and not give me a stomach ache. Also there is a much better variety of things to eat other than what we have on campus.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I honestly could not tell you. I mostly study and watch netflix.
