I feel very safe on UW Superior's campus. It definitely deserves an A+ because I always see our Campus Safety Officers driving around campus and in our buildings. They seem to always be around. There have been a number of fire drills, teaching us what to do in case of a real fire occurring. There have been a few thefts on the dorm floors, which caused our RA to put a bulletin board up about keeping your doors locked, items secure, etc. So if you were to live in the dorms, just be smart to keep your belonging safe and secure!

Superior University 2012-13 RESTAURANTS – The restaurants around Superior are great! There's such a variety. Especially since Duluth is right next door. If I can't find anything that I want in Superior I can just go over to Duluth which is a five minute drive from the dorms. It's great to have that available to me. Superior has great Asian food which is my favorite, and has a wonderful array of affordable restaurants for us poor college kids.

UW Superior has a very small campus, with only about 2800 students enrolled. This college has a great program, one of the only one in the Midwestern Region, Art Therapy. They have highly knowledgeable instructors who are experienced in the field, making sure that students get the best instruction and experience possible. Also, UWS strives to have students succeed. Writing, Math and other tutoring centers give students the possibility to get help when needed. Student organizations are constantly advertising for upcoming events for students to attend to, such as Open Mic Nights, Cultural Night, Movie Nights, Bible Studies, etc. Overall, UW Superior has a great campus.
