Overall

The school has a beautiful quad area that is great for squirrel watching or studying. The campus is easy to navigate, but finding parking is horrible unless you are staff/junior/senior. Best bet would be to pay the extra $35-$40 at the off campus church groups if you don't want to have to hike to campus. The campus police are very snotty and uncaring; any offense is a reason to recieve a ticket. There are some great, caring and passionate professors, but there are some that feel that the more students that can be failed, then their job is complete. Be prepared for tuition hikes (usually in the range of $75-$100) every semster. Take advantage of the free lunches offered by off campus church groups like Baptist Collegiate Ministry and Wesley Foundation. There are two more that offer free lunches, but I do not know the names. Each of these groups have their lunches on different days of the week so trying all of them is possible. These groups are also great ways to make friends and socialize with other students. You don't have to commit to their organization; just show up for food and fun.

Academics

Most of the professors seem to want to teach. The class sizes are not too large and workload depends on professor. You are expected to attend class and class participation is a must. Be sure to take advantage of the tutoring centers; there are some really great tutors in the math center. The Write to Excellence center also has great tutors and the atmosphere is ecclectic and interesting.

College Life

I live off campus so I really cannot comment much. From appearances, it seems that campus life is full of activity. There are no wild, out of control parties with students running around like characters in the movie "Animal House" and there has been no incidents of hazing that I have heard of. Campus life appears very tame in comparison to stories on the news about other campuses in the U.S.
