5 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics in my school are very great, progressive and competent in every sports that the school participate in except for football in which I'm in and also to which one of our opponents is better than ours which cause that we haven't win a championship for football in a very long time, but in all of the other sports we always win and bring the trophy home with us whether is in soccer (in which I participate in), basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball etc... Actually, just the year before last year, we won every championship sport, except football just like I said. All of those were able to accomplish cause of our team performances, from our fan support, school spirit and our athletic facilities and mostly the most important the support of our community.

Party Scene: Any party scene in the Carribbean is awesome. There are even free shuttles for the college students to go out and party and bring them home safely.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: There are no parties on campus at all.

1 College Junior

Academics: Very, very, very poor academic standards. I have had so many incompetent teachers who admit to being under-qualified for their position. Although you do get some teachers who are excellent, most unfortunately are not.

2 College Junior

Diversity: The school is mostly west-indian. Its difficult to be a "mainlander" in this campus, and don't even consider being openly gay here. I have seen on multiple occasions gay men being called "faggots", a "disgrace" and "not a man" I have even seen many islanders openly bash gay men and call them disgusting. I was horrified to witness this, especially since being a lesbian, or a gay female is totally tolerated and even encouraged. Only gay men are discriminated against and not gay women.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not much is done about drugs/alcohol on campus by security.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are very few activities, groups and friend circles. Everyone attending from the main land will feel as though it is difficult to make friends or feel socially accepted. Islanders in general have a lack of openness twoards non-islanders. I attended this university for 2 years and couldn't take it anymore. The website looks promising but do not let the view or beach make your decision. Know that this campus' faculty is so unhelpful, rude, and generally inconsiderate of the students needs. The facilities date back to the 80's with little improvement since, including the laundry room which is typically broken or unusable.In my experiences over the 2 years I attended, I had to force or demand services that other universities would willingly give or be helpful with. I strongly recommend spending a semester visiting as an exchange student before enrolling. (by the way i didn't get my acceptance letter until 2 months after the school year had started, that should have been a clear warning to stay away) You will not feel like you are getting the education you are paying for. Generally as far as athletics, basketball is the only sport recognized or supported, my boyfriend ran track and was denied the scholarship promised to him at the end of the semester.

Health & Safety: They educate us on the high concentration of HIV and AIDS on island (highest area concentration in the United States), but not much other than that. Security is minimal, letting everyone in during the day and its very easy to slip by after hours.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: I strongly recommend students who are considering attending this university NOT TO. the staff is so rude and inconsiderate, the facilities are below standard and the class work is easier than most high schools. I even attended a class in which my professor had never taught and admitted on being under-qualified to teach. You will NOT get your moneys worth going to this school as the entire staff is lazy and uneducated for being a part of an American University.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Since located in the Caribbean, there is a severe need for air conditioning, which is priced at an extensive premium. The air conditioned rooms are priced over $500 more than the other rooms available on campus, which are stuck in the relentless heat. Only a ceiling fan is offered to the rooms with no air conditioning. there is a strict separation between the haves and the have-nots. Not to mention the constant ant and roaches.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: Very exclusive given the small amount of students.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There is only one facility for basketball and other sports that can be played in a gym. There is a severe lack of attention given to any other sport besides basketball, there isn't even a track to run on.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: The staff is so unfriendly and unreliable. Don't count on the EVER answering their phones, even during business hours or tending to any matter that needs any attention.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are very reasonable about their meeting hours with students. The curriculum is very challenging. The workload depends on your field of study. The registration process is easy. There are minimum study areas on campus only at the library.

Overall Experience: The atmosphere is very friendly. Its a small campus with sociable people. The class room settings are about 30 people maximum. Which can be very convenient in getting to know everyone in your class and interact with the professor.

Campus Housing: It is wonderful to live on campus the study areas are in walking proximity. People respect your quiet time. The cafe is open late at night after you finish studying, exercising , working , doing homework to catch a late night snack.

Greek Life: We are all a loving community Greeks are acceptable because we do not discriminate one another.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel comfortable on campus. I can exercise at night without being worried about crimes. I can come outside and sleep on my blanket and watch the stars without being afraid.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are not a major issue. People respect others and are aware that it is not acceptable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center at the University of the Virgin Islands is very helpful. They are available on weekends. They have students helping mentoring other students in the subject matters that they may struggle with. They also give you a short survey at the end pertaining to any concerns / what you liked.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like my college because it is in the Caribbean and I live five minutes away. I am around friends and I have also made a lot more from all over the United States. I chose this university because it's cheaper than most in the USA and I'm and still trying to figure out what I want to pursue as a career.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I just wish there were more majors available and more research opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not really sure but I would suppose it depends on majors and focuses
