    There are always fun and discounted activities to do here and if the activity you want is not here you can add it by getting a group of friends together with he same interest as you to make the club. One activity that I enjoyed at a discounted price was the trip to Times Square New York City. It only coasted twenty dollars being a student to attend the New York City trip. The best part was, since we are adults we did not need to be chaperoned, we were just required to meet up at the dedicated bus boarding place so the bus would not leave us.

    I did like it and yes they have many clubs but I always found that every time I wanted to join a club it conflicted with my schedule which was frustrating. Also while it can be a nice quiet campus it usually is filled with a lot of parties and if you're not a partier it might be somewhat difficult to find people who are not partiers either.

    I love it here. The dorms are comfortable, the staff is wonderful, and because the campus is so small, you can get from one side of the campus to the other in five minutes. There is always something going on, be it a game, a comedian, or just a coffeehouse singer in the crusader cafe.

    Dorms are very roomy compared to other dorms. Freshmans have 3 options to choose from housing options. One is even a suite, which I will have in the fall of 2010. People are very friendly. I made 5 friends on Connection Day just from the group activity thatwe all did. Also, they help keep you on campus to make feel more homey there. They have so much activities to do.
