Off-Campus Housing: It's a small town so you have to usual small town options. Nothing fancy.

Scholarships: Some people have troubles with the Financial Aid office, but if you work with them it is fine. Apply for scholarships and you might get some aid.

Party Scene: The parties are pretty rad, or so I've heard. Many people go home on friday nights so, thursdays are the most popular.

Campus Food: The main dining hall has multiple options for each meal, but they tend to repeat quite often. The pancake bar and other special meals occur every other week or so, and those are pretty good. The lower cafeteria has the same options everyday, they are good but cost an arm and a leg practically.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great experience during the week, but sadly most of the students go home for the weekends. The dorms are all unique, for instance one building has Murphy style beds and half floors for better interaction between students.

Party Scene: I've been to a few great parties, the Max is the best for bar life the drinks aren't too expensive they even have great food. I think Thursday is the liveliest night since a lot of people go home on the weekends.

Campus Food: I think there are some good options for variety. I think the lower cafeteria has kind of high prices and it can be hard to get a full meal there without using too many flex dollars. I would like to see the lower part expand a little it can be a little too crowded during peak lunch hours.

Local Area: Wayne is nice if you're into small town life, I'm more of a big city person so I find it to be quite boring. I think there's a ton of parties because there's not much else to do. Wayne is about 45 minutes to Norfolk and about 45 minutes-an hour away from Sioux City, both of these cities offer a little more options for shopping and restaurants. I would say that Lincoln is the closest for great sports and events. The local attitude toward students is great in my opinion. Many businesses offer student discounts, and some even hire students and offer flexible schedules.

Administration: I think there are some areas that could use some work but in general it's pretty good.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The place I had was $415 for a two-bedroom it had a decent amount of space but the building was an older building with creaky wooden floors and no air conditioning. My landlord was Property Exchange Partners, they were great, any time we had a problem they would send someone over to fix it shortly after, they also work well with students, instead of having a year lease my lease was from August to May. The one complaint I have on them was that the school year was over a week into May and we had asked to stay until then which they said was fine but then we ended up having to move out by the first anyways, so make sure you get any extension in writing. The place I had was on the other side of town on second street so I would plan on leaving at least 15 to 20 minutes before your class starts to get to the college and get a parking space. The place I had was a short distance from Main Street which was nice since I was 21 and could go to the bars by walking too.

Greek Life: There's not many options for Greek chapters. I don't really see the impact of the Greek students and I don't really know of Greek housing.

Campus Housing: I lived in Terrace Hall, my walk to the building where I had most of my classes was like less than a minute (Gardner), probably about three minutes to the student center, the library, and maybe 3-5 to other buildings on campus. The parking lot always seemed kind of far when carrying things back to dorm though. Terrace doesn't have air conditioning and it gets unbearably hot during the warmer months. I was a transfer student and I thought it was kind of hard to get involved in the social scene as a shy person. But it does seem like freshmen really get to know each other so it would have been great to start earlier. The bathroom on my floor always seemed to be flooding which was kind of gross. The room itself was a decent size for a dorm room I liked having a walk in closet.

Off-Campus Dining: I love Miss Molly's for amazing coffee and some healthier options, but I wish they were open more days of the week. There is a Chinese restaurant, a couple Mexican restaurants, Geno's, Udder Delights, The Max has great burgers and is great for drinks as well. There is also Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, Runza, Subway, & Godfathers. I would love to see more options for international food but I know it's not very common in small towns in Nebraska.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I went from a city with the population of being around 423,000 (Omaha) to a small state school in Wayne, NE. So, of course, I'm going to have my cons. But, some amazing pros to my situation are that we are about a 45 minute drive to 2 bigger cities and I am able to know more of my peers because of me choosing a smaller college outside of Omaha, NE.

Athletics: Rugby is very big at college. As an intramural sport it is very popular, more so than any other sport. I would say varsity sports does not get as big of a crowd and support as other schools. I have personally heard many negative things about our football team and coach. School spirit could be better. Coming from highschool to college, the spirit and excitement is much lower.

Off-Campus Dining: This town is just big enough to include fast food restaurants and still has that small town feel of personally owned restaurant I wish student discounts were more accessible and more abundant. In my opinion, I think their is a wide variety of places to eat. The best places to eat is Wayne east gas station. Although, it isn't a eating place, it is well known for being open 24/7 and has the best nachos in the world.

Health & Safety: Since I have never heard of any assaults happening to anyone, I assume campus is very good about this. Safety is good such as an example of wildcat wheels. Wildcat wheels are very helpful and nice to depend on. I feel very safe on campus even at night.

Off-Campus Housing: Well me and my roommate just about got the best place to live. It is practically on campus. The size is perfect. The cost is average. Our landlords live far away but are very nice and dependable. Safety all over town is good due to lack of danger, gangs, etc. In our home parking is a small problem but nothing to complain too much about. Receiving help from the school isn't present that I know of, but it could be. The only con is having to fix many things in the house due to the age of the house. The handymen are a little lazy and don't always fix what is broken. Also another con is bats! Our realtor's (who who are in control due to the distance that the landlords live) did an okay job at trying to fix the problem, but four bats is three too many.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is wonderful! Their is something to do in the dorms at least once a week. Cost is about average. I know people who can't afford the dorms and it hinders their college experience by having to live at home, but that is to be expected i'm sure. Convenience is nice because the college is small, so distance to and from places is short. The housing process gives us a choice of about three dorms to live in freshman year so we can decide what is best for us.

3 College Junior

Administration: I would say it's about average compared to other schools. I think you either live an academic life in college or a social one. Having both is difficult but that is to be expected.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am in Graphic Design, and I had no trouble at all getting into the art program. My application for college was average. It is a state college, so their wasn't much competition or difficulty getting in.

4 College Junior

Majors: I like my teachers as well as the classes they teach. The workload keeps us learning and we get tons of experience. Many projects in my graphic design classes use projects for the real world and they use the best design for that company. I enjoy that very much. The curriculum is great. As for job opportunities, I wish they were better. My home is far away, so consequently internships or job opportunities are hard because they are mostly offered during the summer.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The campus tries really hard to keep the students entertained. This is due to a small town, with a lack of entertainment. Our campus does a good job but unfortunately, if one activity isn't fun or is poorly planned, it's hard to trust that the next entertainment will be better. I think our campus could try to do a better job at advertising events. The number of students that attend is sometimes low, making the event lackluster.
