College Life Rating

The social atmosphere is great and the clubs are very interesting to join. You get the opportunity to learn new things and meet new people. You get more involved and be in a diversity group. I get a chance to learn different culture. The campus is very safe at night classes but the only thing need to improve is to put more lights in some parking areas. Athletics activities are excellent and a lot to choose from. I must say that the campus is clean and safe for every student.

There are club sports teams you can sign up for and play at your leisure depemding on your coursework. Its your choice how involved you want to be. There is always something going on on campus and trips off campus that include transportation if you are intersted. Your dorm also has 1 time per week eating together so you get an opportunity to meet others in your dorm, the RA organizes activities.
