College Life Rating

I feel safe walking around since we have our own police force and safety boxes all over campus. I haven't joined any clubs or organizations, so I can't say much on that topic. The social atmosphere is great, though. As I said previously, everyone is really nice so it's an easy-going environment.

College Life Rating

During football season especially, there is SO much to do! I have found so many clubs that I can't even join them all so there is no shortage there. The only complaint about social atmosphere is how Greek centered it is, however, there are plenty of non Greek things to attend, you just have to look harder.
