College Life Rating

The nightlife is great if you know where to go. The townhouses are great for parties and there are many clubs around in Norfolk and the oceanfront in Virginia beach. They have many activities including the mud games the glow party and the foam party. There is always something going on in the batten center whether it is climbing the rock wall or listening to a comedy show.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

College Life Rating

The ocean front is close and there are clubs there that are clean and safe. Our athletics especially our basketball team is big at our school. There aren't that many parties or anything that happens on the weekend. You pretty much just sit in your room with some friends and watch movies.
