Greek life isn't as important as it should be. Students aren't understanding that history behind it! There's so much respect that should be given, that's misplaced on campus. Those who are apart, and even those who aren't apart understand that Greek life could use expansion. We're missing Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. along with Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Inc. I think these are two of the most active organizations that I've come across world wide, and it's unfortunate that our campus isn't being able to benefit from what these two organizations could bring.

In the beginning professors are always stern, and strict. Throughout the school year they seem to become friendly, and willing to engage in conversations outside of the classroom. Class sizes are manageable, Quality of courses aren't hard once you actually out in the effort to understand whats going on, and take the time out to do what needs to be done. Class styles vary! They cater to students who learn in any way, rather its visual, or hands on. The variety of classes aren't as wide as they should be.

Campus life is convenient! It's close to classes, and gives you the knowledge of knowing how to encourage high scholastic's, and ethical standards on a more personal level. Campus also life promotes unity, and friendship. It services the life's that are at hand, and allows everyone to see the importance of maintaining a progressive interest in college life.
