4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Great people. Great parties. Great fun.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The JFC is great! WAC seems dedicated to sports but we don't do the best. We do well though I guess!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I believe it is pretty expensive but good place to live.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I hear they are good. I don't really know. I am not a frequent partier.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I like the late night hours.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I love the college. I don't know much about administration but there is a new president and I have heard great things!

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: They were extremely helpful and it went quickly and smoothly

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I enjoy it but it could always be better! There is great variety at all times. The pasta can be improved.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It really depends on where you set up shop. Honestly.

Locals don't take too kindly to partying on Washington Avenue, Mount Vernon, or Kent Circle, which are the only "good" neighborhoods next to campus. You could try your luck closer to High Street, but you're trading square-footage and convenience for a more intimate space further from campus. You could also try across Washington Avenue on Philosopher's Terrace, or any of the neighborhoods over there, but again, you're trading away convenience for a bit more treacherous of a walk, crossing several busy roads on the way to campus. Whatever floats your boat!

Mount Vernon, Kent Circle, and W Campus Avenue have scarce parallel parking, and driveways are not a guarantee. Washington Avenue is better for parking. You can also just leave your car on-campus if you can't find parking close to your housing.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a party-goer, so I am not the best person to ask.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Depending on where you go. Plaza Tapatia, Procolino's, Fish Whistle, Luisa's, China House, and Lemon Leaf are all worth it. Domino's is the only late night option after campus dining services close up. There's a Rita's Italian Ice, a smoothie shop, and an ice cream shop called The Freeze all within walking distance from anywhere on campus. Also within walking distance is a to-die-for sub shop in C-Town Liquors. It's not as good as it used to be, but it's still the best sub shop for miles on the Eastern Shore. Downtown on High Street, you can get hand-scooped ice cream at Stam's Drug Store, right in walking distance of Fish Whistle, Lemon Leaf, and a short hike from the college boat house and waterfront.

Experimentation is a must, and highly encouraged!

4 College Freshman

Administration: No real comments. Officers are very helpful, and follow up on all concerns.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Write a good app. essay for the merit scholarship and actually talk face to face with financial aid for the rest. They will work WITH you! Have a campus job? Ask about federal work study. Already have one FWS job, but have another campus job that isn't FWS? Talk to Natalie Story and she'll set you up with more FWS dollars to spread to the other job. It's great!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Martha's is great, Mondo's is missed, Create is passable, Dining Hall is hit or miss, Sophie Kerr Cafe is minimal, and Java George is great for grab and go.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a large spectrum. There is some great, and some horrible. However, all residence halls will be improved in the coming years, so this 3-star will very soon be a 5-star. Keep that in mind!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They do their jobs well and care about things that actually matter.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's great! I get a lot of financial aid; however I still need a few thousand covered so I need to apply for scholarships since the school has yet to give me anymore money.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Again, the dining hall food is nothing special; however, sometimes the chicken in the dining hall can be undercooked which is a concern. One time my friend got a piece of chicken that was purely raw in the middle.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are what you can expect out of freshmen dorms- nothing too exciting. However, Minta Martin is dirty and smells like mildew on all 4 floors. The other freshmen dorms are decent. I live in the Western Shore and it is completely different. Much better quality of living and also very clean.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus housing is ok but I don't have any desire to live off campus because the houses aren't that great and it's not really worth the money.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I actually don't go out much since I drive Safe Ride but I find from this job that I mostly pick up people from off campus.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We only have a Dominos and McDonald's open past 8pm and the latest campus options close at 11. So if you need to eat anytime past 11, you are forced to eat fast food. Other than those places, we have 1 mexican place and 1 sit down Italian place. No variety in town restaurants.

4 College Junior

Athletics: they just redid the gym and its pretty nice inside but not a lot of variety in equipment

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lived off campus my sophomore year and it was great but was expensive and had a lot of distractions. Won't do it again

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There used to be a lot more parties on campus, but now there isnt anything to do but go to the bar.
