WHAT I LIKED

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!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

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!)

WHAT I LIKED

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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

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.

WHAT I LIKED

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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

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.
