4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really great places to eat off campus for decent prices. Lots of variety in Canyon and even more in the short drive to Amarillo.

4 College Junior

Administration: As a commuter student and nontraditional I have had very pleasant experiences with all of the administration staff that I have encountered!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: There are so many scholarships offered here if you meet the requirements for them. Financial aid is a breeze if you do it early enough and don't wait til last minute.

College Junior

Party Scene: I am a commuter student (80miles each way) and married with a child, so I don't partake in the party scene or too many campus activities.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I enjoy having a variety of places to eat in the JBK as I never go to the cafeteria being a commuter student and the JBK is right next to all of my classes!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus but I have several friends who do. I visited one not too long ago and I was surprised by the price she paid for what she got. There was a nice social atmosphere and gathering room, but her room itself was so tiny, old and there wasn't even air conditioning in it! There was a fan in a window. Not great considering it's the panhandle of Texas and temperatures can be pretty high.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus. I have some friends that do, and they seem to like it just fine. Most people I know try not to live on campus.

Off-Campus Dining: If I had the money, I would eat off campus every time. There's a lot of Thai and pizza places around, but that's about it. I don't mind that, though.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had any problems with the administration. Noise complaints are typically handled by the RAs in whatever manner seems fit.

Scholarships: I didn't apply for any school loans, and was not offered a great amount in scholarships. Percentage-wise, though, my scholarship covered about 1/5 of my total expenses per semester. Just apply for as many as you can.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Caf is awful. During the weekends they don't replenish the soup and salad bar, so dinners are sad. Sometimes the entrees in the Caf are okay, but you have to be careful. When they try to do Mexican or Asian food, it can be questionable. The food at the JBK is fine, but there's not a lot of it and the lines can be long.
