College Life Rating

The social life at this campus is pretty fun, it is a Big 12 school so it is large enough and has a strong enough athletic body to really make it a community. Students and faculty alike can bond and talk about the football games and the celebrations afterward. Campus is quite safe, it is well-lit at night. There is an area downtown where many students go on the weekends or to just let loose.Although this is a relatively small town, it is surprisingly pleasant and fun.

College Life Rating

Very social, very fun. The sidewalks of the school are always chalked up with information on new groups, meetings, bake sales, dances, etc. Everywhere you walk there's more information on what to do and where to go.
