College Life Rating

The campus always has lots of events to go to. Greek life is a big part of it for me personally, but I also have friends who are not part of it and love the school the same. I love that I can go to different sporting events and show my school spirit, along with my friends.

College Life Rating

Its wonderful. There so much things to do and so many clubs you can join. You can even make up your own club and ask people to join. You cant be bored at college. There's no way. The campus looks safe and feels safe. On weekends there's plenty activities going on.
