Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2001

College Life Rating

Always something going on and always something to do. If, however, you find something missing - you can always start a new organization or group and find like-minded peers who share your interests. I always felt safe on campus and I have nothing to complain about. Except maybe parking, but I think they have been expanding to handle the demand. Get used to riding a bike! It's the main method of transportation on campus.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2006

College Life Rating

You can find a student group for just about anything. There's tons of club and intramural sports going on as well. Campus is super safe, just remember to be a conscientious bike-rider and you'll be fine. Social atmosphere is good, but it's not a crazy party school. People are fairly responsible.
