Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

College Life Rating

There is so much to do on and off campus. I love it!

Alumnus - Grad Year 1997

College Life Rating

As a commuter student it was difficult to get a full grasp of the social aspects. There were a variety of social organizations though with a lot of events going on throughout the year. The campus has gotten much less of a secluded feel since I was there which has been to the benefit of campus vibrance.
