Catherine Patrick



This college is okay. Food is available but limited healthy choices. Social events are put on later in the day and it’s easy to work closely with professors. Limited fast food places as well as places to work. Res life can be hard to get ahold of. Safety is not a huge concern.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Food choices, reliability on getting things fixed in the room, technology availability, workplace choices.



I like how there are many groups on campus that students can join. These promote diversity, and lasting friendships, and help students to get out of their comfort zones.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The quality of the food in the cafeteria isn't always the best, in my opinion. Some people do like the food, though. I think the food is hit or miss if it's good.
