Great school with great teachers but has very little to do on campus. There is a shuttle that takes you to the mall and the other campus but one trip is around 30 minutes. The food is great at lunch but when it comes to dinner it is a buffet and it is not very good. The restaurant on weekend has the worst schedule and on saturday's it opens at 4 and closes at 7. I live in Fairfield and the dorms are great. They are spacious and it feels like a true home. Fairfield also has a hotel like feel due to the narrow hallways and the walls.

So if you are like me and didn't do much research, let me summarize it for you. If you plan to live ON-CAMPUS and you like interacting with people this is not the school. It is PRIMARILY A COMMUTER SCHOOL. At least for freshmen, you will most likely be living on mid-town campus. This school is incredibly small, it says about 5,000 total students. On midtown campus after the day is over and on weekends it feels more like there is only 100 people on campus. The campus IS SEPARATED by 12 minutes. A split campus means that you have to take a shuttle over to West-side. West-side is better and the food on west side is better. On midtown the food is not as good and the breakfast, lunch, dinner schedule is odd, at times they may even be closed during the morning (make sure you keep food in your dorm). If you are a party person there is basically only one party, it frequently gets shut down. And that's pretty much it, there isn't much to do here, I want to transfer and it had been only a month. The only thing so far that I have liked are the cafe ladies, they are nice. Side note: I do not play any sports and such, so it is probably more fun when you have sports or instruments.
