There are a lot of students and faculty-planned activities to break the ice of socializing. Due to the pandemic, things have become somewhat limited, but as time passes, more and more things are opening up!
As a POC, I've noticed that I'm one of few women of color, and depending on the field it can be a little competitive (STEM majors). Make sure to find your community and faculty here (because there definitely is one for everyone!)
The science building has been recently updated and the English, Math, and Biology faculty are just amazing! Same with the Career Counselors and Gender & Sexuality Program staff. Great, encouraging people.
If you have a gluten allergy or use a wheelchair, this campus may be very difficult for you. Additionally, if you are a student with a disability, Accessibility Services has a history of being condescending or sometimes no help at all.
I really like that the small size of the school made it easy to meet people and make friends. The campus is also beautiful and fun to spend time outside.
The school is very greek life oriented and it often feels that if you do not want to be a part of that world, your social life will suffer. I also have not always had the best experiences with counselors.
