Overall

I like the school because it is small and quiet with nice housing. I dislike the school because the school officials could care less about students (for example, they once made everyone go to class while a tornado siren was blaring because a tornado touched down just miles from the school) and the dining hall is terrible and gives me a stomach ache every night.

Academics

The academics are okay. Mostly, it depends on the instructor you have. If you have a very passionate instructor, it is fun to be there. Sometimes, however, the instructors look like they'd rather be anywhere but standing in class teaching and you can tell that by the way they teach. I've had some classes that have such a big workload that I have to stay up all night. Other classes, however, might not have any homework except a once a week assignment. Class sizes vary greatly depending on the course. I've had classes as small as 13 students and classes as large as 120. Core classes tend to be much bigger than major-related courses. The courses as a whole are not that great. The school in general does not care about its students so it does not care if the instructor does either. There are some really great professors, though! It really all depends. I find that when signing up for classes, the rate my professor website is a very useful tool. It helps me find the best course for me when there is a large variety. The courses do fill up very fast, though, so the sooner you register the better.

College Life

I do not know a lot about the clubs. I am only in one. Clubs make it easier to make friends, and there are a lot to choose from. The social atmosphere is hard to describe without using the word tense. There is an equal ratio of unfriendly and friendly students, so they are often all mixed together, making it awkward to converse. The campus safety is superb. There are emergency boxes around campus and police constantly patrolling. The surrounding area is very safe, too, with the only real problem being that the town natives tend to do meth or deal other drugs. As long as you stay with the right crowd, you cannot find a safer college. The athletics are okay. There is no football team, but everyone loves to watch soccer in the fall. It is actually very entertaining and there is a lot of school spirit. Weekend activities are non-existent. There are probably 3 bars in the whole town. All of the shops in downtown close at around 5 in the evening. The best way you can have a weekend life is by driving to other cities in the state. Most students just go home on the weekend.

Overall

Not my cup of tea, to be quite honest. I can see why some want to go here-- there's a rich military history as one of the senior military colleges in the US. However, if you're not in the military, there isn't a ton to be proud of. I just wish I was at a bigger school, with more to offer. I want to be in a more academically stimulating environment.

Academics

The classes vary in difficulty. Some are harder than others, but all are doable. Professors seem to be, for the most part, willing to help, and good people. Class sizes range from 15 students to 100. By far the most popular majors are Biology and Nursing. History/Pre-Law students like me may feel a tad lonely at times, but it's whatever.

College Life

The social atmosphere isn't real great. There's no football, only basketball and baseball really. On the weekends everyone goes home, because mostly everyone who goes here grew up within an hour away. Clubs are ok.. I founded one myself. Campus safety is superb, due to the police/US Army presence.. however there is talk of concealed carry, if it were to become legal, unfortunately.
