College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party! So I can't really say if they are good or bad. I have heard that they are fun though!

Campus Food: Dining hall hours are great. They change up the menus and everything taste like homemade.

Campus Housing: There is an option for everyone. If you want quiet, loud, large, small, co-ed, etc, they have it!

Campus Food: The options are pretty good but the hours for most of the options are pretty bad.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We have great teams and a wonderful student section that is at almost every game helping cheer on the teams.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel really safe. Aside from the occasional unlit path, everything is very visible and there is always security that you could call. I tend to walk across campus late at night and/or early in the morning for work and have not had any issues.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wasn't eligible for any scholarships through the school but they were accommodating with my loans.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly local restaurants and McDonalds. Driving down University you can find quite a few other fast food options though.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There are tons of things to do off campus! After awhile it feels sort of repetitive though.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Be careful where you park. Tickets galore. Most dorms are fairly lenient about some things depending on your RA.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are dressed appropriately. Other than the occasional kiss goodbye, I haven't noticed very much PDA.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not gone to parties. Whether or not you party doesn't really have an impact on your student experience.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: CAB hosts great events, and everyone is super into being a panther. Sporting events and the traditions checklist are both big topics of discussion.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love the College of Education! They are absolutely wonderful about helping potential teachers get into the classroom right away to make sure we are positive about being teachers. They are super helpful with class advisement and the professors are very knowledgeable about being in a classroom. The COE puts on a lot of events throughout the year to help us gain experience with kids and are really good about notifying us about upcoming opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The on campus police are really great and take every issue seriously. I feel very safe being on campus at night alone. They take sexual assault cases very seriously and notify the entire student body whenever one is reported, which has only been twice so far.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's not that big on our campus and it really isn't a big deal whether or not you're involved with Greek life.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! The RAs host great programs and they are really good about getting people involved in our hall. The cost is pretty reasonable considering all of the amenities that come with living on campus. Contracting for Housing is relatively simple and a quick process. All of the dorms are close to classes so I don't have to worry about walking forever in the freezing cold.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard it's pretty good, I've never lived off campus so I don't have any personal experience with it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of places close to campus are individually owned or are small chains so they are really good about keeping their prices affordable to college students. The places on College Hill are close and easy to get to, but some of the better places on Main Street are further away and are really only accessible if you have a car to drive.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Both guys and girls here really seem to care about their appearance in class. Most of the time people aren't dressing really trashy or lazily. There are quite a few relationships I guess, but I haven't really run into any couples that are very into PDA, most people keep their business to themselves.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Both athletes and non-athletes are hugely involved in sports on campus. There is a huge fan base for our varsity sports and our students really care about our sports teams.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really go out and party, I mostly stay in with friends but people talk about the parties being pretty good most of the time.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I don't go out, but there are only about 2 or 3 bars people go to and I never hear of "house parties" etc. I know a lot of people casually drink at their apartments with friends.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Since my parents are divorced I never got clear answers on what I needed. And when I brought one thing in I would need three other things. It was quite frustrating but I got what I needed eventually.
