5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Registering as a transfer student and feedback of what was needed was done either by mail, phone or email. Every step was simple and well detailed and organized. Only snafu was from my end which limited me from starting when I wanted to, but it has been a great experience.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: As I have not tried to get into Greek life, I have no clue.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not sure, commute from another town

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great local bakery//luncheon restaurant that is open Monday thru Friday that offer a great variety of food but is a scheduled menu. They grow their own vegetables (tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers), bake all their own pastries and is a great place to have lunch.

Administration: As a commuter, do not know what the situation is, but from speaking to others about living on campus there is freedom and rules that need to follow for a cohesive living arrangement for all students involved.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Process was simple and efficient. Had no issue with the financial aid office or the people that work in the department. Always reachable either by telephone, fax or email. Responses within 24 hours.

Campus Food: Food on a whole is good. There are times that soups are salty, overall, food is good, hot and wholesome.

Scholarships: Score higher on the ACT or make sure you are involved in high school to qualify for leadership scholarships. There are not very many options for scholarships through the university, so you have to look for outside sources of scholarships. The financial aid process went pretty smoothly and was very easy to find out what I needed to know and how to accept my financial award.

Campus Food: Some days are better than others. Its better not to go right before the caf closes each day.

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly fast food restaurants are available. There are a couple of steak restaurants where the cost is about what you would expect. A Mexican restaurant has OK food for a higher price than you would expect. One cafe is only open for lunch and is pricey. Students are able to use their student cards at most establishments. Diamond Jim's and Mrs. Donna's Restaurant is a favorite. The food is excellent and not too expensive to allow college students to eat well. Dandy Don's can't be beat for good hamburgers, chicken fingers, etc. Great prices and friendly atmosphere. Excellent food.

Campus Housing: I know a few people who live on campus. Their rooms seem to have everything they need. There are often cookouts in a common area. The problem is that there is an inadequate availability which requires many students to live off campus.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartment complexes and trailer parks available. All have very good reputations and are neatly kept. The cost is about the same for each category of housing. The con about the trailer park I live in is the distance to commute to school. Though it is not far, the price of gas for the trips I make to school and back each day is more than I would like to pay. I am hoping for an apartment closer to the campus for next school year.

Athletics: The football stadium is very nice and well supported by current students and alumni. The baseball facility, softball facility, rodeo grounds, and intermural areas are an asset. All are well attended by people in the community along with students of the school. It is often a family affair to attend any of the sporting opportunities. The athletes appreciate the fan's support.

Administration: Everyone I have encountered has been very positive and helpful. I have not felt like I was imposing. It has made my college experience very comfortable.

Scholarships: I was able to fax or email the required forms with ease. I was able to communicate by phone with the person in the financial aid office who handled my paperwork. It was a very easy process once everything go started.

Greek Life: I am not a member but do know people who are. They have been kind enough to invite me to parties and have invited me to join. I am not interested at this time. Some people view Greeks as being rude to non-Greeks. That has not been my experience. I know they are involved in service projects as well as social functions.

Health & Safety: The school tries hard to make the campus feel safe for everyone, and I feel comfortable walking alone at night. There isn't much crime, but because of that, it's hard to say what kind of reaction there would be as a result of crime.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Basketball, Football and Volleyball are generally going to get the most spectators, while Tennis and Soccer don't. In fact, I didn't even know we had a Soccer team. The Football field's away side is basically half of what an average high school has. The home side isn't any better.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Gilbert Hall is not what it is cracked up to be. You are required to stay there your Freshman year, and it is not worth it. Crappy internet, paper-thin walls, highly sensitive fire alarms, power outages, the occasionally rude front desk clerk... Though, that's subjective.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There isn't really much to do here outside of the campus. There is a movie theater and a few places to eat, and... That's about it!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in a sorority, but like any part of society, you'll have people who think they're above you, and people who try to be accommodating. There is only one Greek house off of campus for one fraternity, and they're the ones that throw a party every Thursday.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to many parties, but there are parties thrown by one certain fraternity every Thursday, and greeks try to keep it common so there is much to do in the way of a social life.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Livingston, Alabama is a college town different from other college towns. It is in the middle of nowhere and the college is the central hub, while other things within the town are built around it. Most services are made specifically for college students and people who live around or work for the college.

College Freshman

Majors: As unfortunate as it sounds, the turnover rate at this particular college is not very high, but I believe it is due to the inexpensive nature of this college, therefore meaning more people can attend and may not be as determined as others. Each class has a requirement of students to earn a certain grade with the risk of failure, so it is possible many students are just not up to the task.
