College Life Rating

The school has many clubs and organizations, but no greek life when I was there. Their athletics are division III, however the rugby team allows for anyone to play if they want. The campus is fairly safe and there is a a good bit of security available. Most of the nightlife is in Washington D.C. or near other schools in the area. There are a few local bars and lots of "house" gatherings. If you want culture there are tons of museums and monuments to visit.
