3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus, nor have I looked for any of those options.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The convenience, cost, and variety of off-campus dining is great. If one does not feel like going to late night, pizza or chinese is always a great option.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I know that the noise level in my hallway can be out of hand a lot, especially on Thursday nights when I have to go to bed early for my 8 AM on Friday. Other than that, the school does everything it can to assure the stress-freeness of accomplishing student's academic goals.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: There were some difficulties with the school receiving the scholarships, but they did get them. Overall, you have to be very proactive so you have get the best scholarship you can.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party much, but if you include sitting with good friends and playing video games or watching movies a party, then they are very good. Personally, I love just spending time with friends and enjoying movies together. These normally take place in the lounges and it has had a positive impact on me cause whenever I am sad or alone, I know that I can look forward to going to see my friends and relaxing by playing a game or watching a movie.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Overall, I like the dining options that I have here. The dining halls are easy accessible, there are many varieties to satisfy any taste in food one desires. The best places for me is Bartels because of the variety and I know that if I don't feel like eating something, there will be another option that I can choose from.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall, college has been a good experience. I have been able to make a lot of friends, the atmosphere here is awesome. The people who work here are kind and always willing to help in any sort of way whether it be with academics or social problems. The cost is a bit much, but I hope with the help of scholarships, it should work out. The housing process has been easy thus far and it is organized in a way everyone can understand and easily get housing for next year.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are very weird here.

Overall Experience: The atmosphere is not positive. People do not love being here. The only reason why I am sticking through with this school is because I made many connections. I wish sports were bigger and the school would lower tuition because it is not worth $51,000.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the money I am paying I am not sure where it all goes. The professors are good at what they do but if they don't just work here you can tell. Some don't care to even show up and advisors are almost impossible to meet with. The class sizes are good but when the professors are not thrilled to be there it makes the students not thrilled to be there. There is no drive to go to class anymore.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is praised but jobs to make extra money while attending the school are impossible to find. Internships are hard to find too but they are valued.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is little crime that occurs on campus. It is a very safe environment and sexual assault is rare. There are lots of services students can attend who need the help, everyone is willing to help out any way they can.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: You don't hear much about sports around campus. The school does not have much spirit and the athletic facilities are not open to non-athletic students so I am not sure how they are.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love being a part of greek life. It opens so many doors and opportunities to help others. It makes you feel like you're making a difference in the world and it looks great. Everyone who is involved in greek life loves it and it truly is one big happy family. We love non-Greek life people too, everyone is equal in our minds. It is a lot of extra time and commitment but it is worth it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A student who moves off campus can save up to $14,000 a year. It is an added freedom, the only downfall is finding a place to park when its time for classes. I am thrilled to be able to move off campus next year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I do not eat off campus much because I do not have a car but when I do the food is affordable and usually students get a discount. It is fun to take little trips to restaurants on weekends as treats for working hard during the week.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I feel like we are being babied. As adults we should be able to decide when we can have visitors and how long they stay. By limiting visitation to only nonschool nights takes away from our freedom and our feeling of responsibility.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They give financial aid where it needs to be. Is it enough? No but it is better than nothing. I had to beg for more because I have siblings in college and my school is more than both my brothers tuitions combined.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: We do not have parties. I understand that parties are not why we are in school but it is fun to have the break from studying. It is important on a social aspect, with minimal parties that equals minimal opportunities to meet others not in your organizations or classes. I wish there were more parties.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is not the best, it has made me sick before but I could be far worse.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooming selection is not great but the dorm selections are good. The cost is unreasonable and way too expensive, it feels like a college student is living at high school. There is no ease with housing process, it is outrageous and confusing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing can be apartments based near the school. They are pretty easy to come by and are relatively cheap, especially if you get a roommate. It saves a lot of money versus living on campus but can be a hassle if you don't have a car

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing very close and mostly everything is shut down by around midnight. You either need a car, or you're walking through the McDonald's drive thru with a huge group of fellow schoolmates

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They can be strict, just don't get caught. Getting caught with alcohol can result in fines and drugs can get you kicked out of school sponsored housing. Otherwise, just using common sense and being somewhat respectful of the rules is all you need to abide by.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got quite a big academic scholarship, however financial aid is tough. It is completely dependent upon filing a FAFSA (which is the government- handled "need based" scholarships". If you know anybody in college, they will tell you how bad FAFSA is at providing the financial aid you'd need to attend university.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students love this school and consider the University home. During the school year, there are tons of different events on campus hosted by the many clubs and organizations. There is always something to do, whether it is going on a trip sponsored by one of the clubs or going to Kayo Field to play capture the flag at 3 a.m. Students should put in what they want to get out the college experience, and it is easy and rewarding to get involved with groups on campus. Even during the summer and winter sessions, there are events and jobs on campus through admissions, Student Activities Department, the Recreation Center, Campus Conferences, and more.
