This university is amazing! I wasn't entirely sure what field I wanted to go into but luckily there is something for everyone here and due to the required courses I get a chance to expand my thinking in order to get involved with so many different groups of people to find my niche. It has so many different programs and organizations on campus and is so involved with the community that it is not difficult to form bonds with people, and the faculty and staff are alwahs so accommodating and helpful because they want to see us succeed. I would choose this university a thousand times over if given the option because I feel as though I really belong here and everyone is so nice and the environment is amazing around here it's not difficult to de-stress when the workload gets overwhelming.

The University itself is great but student housing can be... Let's just say an ordeal. But I'm going to list the positives first- The area is gorgeous and the class sizes are small to medium. You can tell that most people working at this university legitimately care about the students. Other than the dorms, the facilities are great and there are lots of bathrooms in them (you will see why this is important if you read the rest of this). The student population is fairly diverse, with a lot of different groups represented. The professors are also really good.

I live in MacLean hall, which is really old, pretty dirty, sometimes moldy, and has constant problems with bugs, usually ladybugs and June bugs but also sometimes wasps. There are times when I just feel frustrated by the building I have to live in. My housing situation has definitely had a negative impact on my overall experience at this school. The bathrooms are cleaned every weekday, but they are still my biggest issue with the dorm. Since there are so many students using a bathroom (albeit one with 4 stalls, 6-8 sinks and a shower room in close proximity) it often gets really gross. This is where the other bathrooms come in- There are several clean bathrooms on campus that are available 24/7. The building has singles and suites which have 2 bedrooms and one common room, which is actually really nice. But that's really the only positive. As I said before, the university does care about its students so it's not oblivious to these issues, but the university does not have the time or resources to build a new building. Another negative is that the school does not have a nurse, and although other members of Student Life will try to help you if something is really wrong, it's extremely inconvenient to have to go off campus, especially if you don't have a car.

Due to the increase in the class size there has been limited housing available but they are working on adding new apartments so this will be resolved. I live in the King dorm and while the rooms aren't very large, they are very well constructed and convenient for getting to classes and anywhere else on campus. A cleaning crew cleans at least twice a week so it's never very messy and the resident assistants do a very good job of making sure everyone is satisfied and following the rules. It's a great place to live especially for the freshmen.
