College Life Rating

The social atmosphere is friendly and everyone gets along well. No hazing is allowed but as freshman I did have to a fun little thing singing I'm a little teapot. There are many clubs and organization. The number of greek organzations to choose from can be overwhelming but there is a guest room for anyone who needs it. The campus is safe and recently had new lighting added around the Greek housing, psychology building and band practice field. The students did an awareness need for more lighting with candles in a luminaria bag. The athletic teams are excellant in football, basketball,(went in the final 4 on year) and especially gymnastics and vollyball. There are many football games, basketball games, and excellent intramural team events to choose from each weekend or weekday evening.
