College Life Rating

The atmosphere is amazing. There is so much school spirit. I have not attended many activities so far but the ones that i have been a part of are fun and very energetic. I have always felt safe on the campus and am looking forward to engaging in some of the clubs and activities that are available through the school.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

College Life Rating

This is definitely the weakest part of the school. It's a commuter school with little or no publicity about campus events. There was a live concert on the lawn outside my department building and I had no idea it was happening before they started playing. They really don't make the effort to let students in on extra-curricular events.
