I love this school! I have been attending for 3 years and in the beginning there was construction going on but now that the finished product is here, I think the campus is absolutely beautiful. The warrior recreational center is such a great place to work out. I'm extremely satisfied with the campus, the food, and the people. It is such a diverse campus and I feel like I still see a lot of people I know everyday.

My overall experience at this school is great. This campus provides a little bit of everything that touches my needs. For example, the campus has multiple places to study other than the library that are allow you to focus. Another thing is there are a variety of food places to choose from on mostly every spot on campus. Also, getting stressed out being college and all there are places such as the gym and even an on campus bar where you can have drink or two to relax and take the edge off of things!

We don't need more security, we need better education of students on sexual assault, respect, and consent. We have great services for survivors like Pau Violence at the Women's Center but we need more preventative action. Police and heightened security may create the facade of safety but they do not do much because majority of sexual assault perpetrators are not strangers. Sexual assault is most often committed by people the survivor knows, so we need more interactive, compulsory, engaging educational programs that involve students - especially men - throughout their time at the university, and keep the dialogue open around issues of gender violence.
