3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of off-campus apartments but don't expect anything fancy. Break ins happen all the time and good luck finding a parking spot.

2 College Senior

Party Scene: There is no party scene on campus. The place is completely empty, and although they've been trying to make it more social on the weekends, people either go home or stay in their rooms.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: We have the basic options: pizza, Chinese, and frozen yogurt. If you want something more diverse you need a car because they usually don't deliver.

3 College Senior

Administration: As long as you do what you're supposed to, you'll be fine. Keep a level head and don't do anything stupid.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid constantly gave me problems and it was a struggle to pay for school.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: The first time I went to Sovi, it blew my mind. The food was delicious and had great variety. The cafeteria was clean and spacious, and the music they played was upbeat and set a good environment to hang out with your friends and eat.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's probably better to live at home if you can. While the campus is big and seems like there might be a lot to do, the school is empty on weekends and unless you have a car, you're stuck watching Netflix in your room.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I only went to a couple of parties my freshmen year and none of them were on campus. I rarely hear of parties outside of fraternities of sororities.

Athletics: It's fun to go to games and most are free to students. Intramural is a blast, and they have all different kinds of sports from flag football to tennis... basketball, soccer, volleyball... so much fun!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are several different apartment complexes on the edge of campus. They're reportedly cheaper than living on campus, too. I prefer to live on campus, because then you don't need a car or to commute at all. All the buildings are close by and you can just go back to your dorm and take a nap between classes instead of waiting around until your next class or driving in and out of traffic. The school hosts some information sessions where representatives from all nearby housing people come to campus and give out free stuff.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I missed 36 classes this semester and made a 4.0. Also, I was taking 19 credit hours at the time. Although, I probably wouldn't recommend missing that much class. Certain classes, like language courses, take attendance and allow a certain amount of absences before penalties. Other classes uses clickers and quizzes as participation and attendance. Some teachers are okay with you being absent as long as you participate when you are there and turn your stuff in on time and with good quality. If you're caught drinking under age, odds are you'll get a drinking ticket. Don't do drugs in your dorm... or on campus. If you do, and you get caught... good luck. Visitation in dorms is super lax. At least our building has 24 hour visitation hours. The honor code is taken very seriously.

Scholarships: It wasn't a problem at all for me. Sent in the documents that were requested and everything else was smooth sailing. I knew exactly how much I was getting and how much I needed to pay.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Personally, I think the food in Crown is fine. There's variety, but I would say the biggest problem is it's not necessarily healthy food. The meal plan is actually pretty expensive as a freshmen. My suggestion is to get a meal plan with 175 swipes and $300 db instead of the Unlimited swipes and $200 db. 175 swipes lets you swipe people in and the unlimited plan does not. I had unlimited my first semester and then switched to 175. I swiped in around 40 people throughout the semester and I still had over 50 at the end. And my DB lasted longer, too of course.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost of attendance is pretty reasonable all things considered. The suite style dorms are pretty nice. I wouldn't like the high rises because an entire floor shares a bathroom, but maybe that's just me. In suites, four people share a bathroom. The building I live in is awesome. Everyone gets along for the most part and we host a lot of social activities. Conveniently located to get to different academic buildings within a 15 minute walk. Housing process is a piece of cake.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is awesome and The Edge is the best place to live in my opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Party life is ok it could be better though many weekends are dull.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is magnificent and I usually eat off campus often.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus is very easygoing and doesn't feel like a school prison.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Scholarships are okay but I wish that there were more offered,

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are many food options on campus and all of it provides tasty meals.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is an experience for students in highrises. Recommend staying in Martin because it's the best place to live.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Very costly, more affordable to live off campus. Not to mention you are forced to purchase a very costly meal plan. I lived in a dorm and social atmosphere and proximity to class was great, definitely the best way to stay connected and make sure your going to class, but it's so unaffordable that the perks don't outweigh the cost.

Administration: Parking policies are very strict at the university. Prices are very high and competitive spots makes finding parking and specific locations very unreasonable. Myself and many other students would like to advocate for parking changes at this university as demonstrated in my social welfare and policy course. Visitation policies in the dorms are very reasonable, my freshmen year the policies affecting overnight stay was very fair. The honor code at this university is taken very seriously which positively benefits the universities credibility.

Scholarships: I submit and relieved my aid every year on time and the process was not a hassle. I have utilized loans and grands at this university. The offers I receive are reasonable. The grad school program I am applying to next year was ranked #1 most affordable in the nation in 2014.
