It's a hospital, not too many crimes happening around the campus.
No greek life.
Clubs and Activities
Not a whole lot of clubs, but plenty of events happening on campus, students get an email everyday about stuff happening on campus and at the hospital.
Great for these types of students
Students who know that they want to go into a medical field but not become a doctor.
Bang for the buck
I feel like I'm getting a better education here than I got at MSU, the teacher's are really invested in their students, all of their teaching assistants are students from the program who know first hand the things that are important for us to know.
What to do for fun
Tons of stuff to do downtown and down on Commercial street. There are fairgrounds not to far away where they have various events and concerts, plus concerts on the Drury campus, MSU campus, and at James River Assembly and Remington's, which aren't too far away.
Food and Dining
Haven't tried it yet, but the food on campus is at the Hospital cafeterias which I've heard can be so so. There are plenty of dining options within a 5 minute drive, though.
I don't live in the dorms, nor do I explore the options, I expect they might have some kind of arrangement for dorms with drury, but there are some pretty cheap apartments near there, close to downtown and grocery stores.
Tips for prospective students
If you want to do nursing or radiology/radiography, Cox is a great school, so go here first so you can be eligble for more scholarships and get through your program faster. I would suggest enrolling in OTC for some of the basic general education classes that are requirement for your degree/program.
In three sentences
The teachers really want you to succeed, but not by giving easy A's. You have to really work to pass, but you'll have a firm knowledge of your degree field by the end of your degree program. It's expensive, but it's also a private school with small classes, so that's to be expected.
