My school is a fairly small school approximately 2,500 students. We have three campuses on three islands that make up the Virgin Islands that is, St. John (the St. John Academic Center, St. Thomas and St. Croix). Being that we are such a small institution, the class size is also small and as such students are able to interact with their professors regularly. Additionally, students stand a greater chance of being afforded opportunities when compared to a larger institution with much more students. The administration also interact with students on a day to day basis even the President!

The university is located in Paradise and this makes it unique! Beautiful beaches and a rich history!

Lets start off with the dorms. The living experience the past 4 months has been awful, and there has been numerous conflicts of domestic violence in the dorms. The dorms are not safe at all; anyone can get into them at any time. it is very easy. I have been woken up at night by horrific screams and one time gunshots. The food: the food is terrible. I have actually seen a bug craw out of another students food. The cafeteria is left open 24/7, so no telling what can craw in there. The food is under cooked all the timeand all we have is chicken and rice. A food inspector should shut this place down it is very unsanitary. Work environment: they have actually been in trouble once for not their faculty not showing up on time. No one seems to care enough to take control of any situation. They are very far behind on finacial aid and orginization. There are no clubs or activities to do on campus. Dont think about calling the police most of the time they dont even show up unless it is a extremely drastic situation. The professors are mainly her for research and teaching is a secondary job to them they are lzy and unprofessional. DO NOT GO THERE!

There was never an incident concerning drugs and alcohol that hampered the safety of the University's students. You rarely see students taking part in such activities, unless you have an intimate relationship with those that do. The on-campus environment is healthy enough for non-smokers and non-drinkers. Those that do it, do it. If you don't that's okay! Policy enforcement is hands down the best.
