Slippery Rock has a beautiful, safe campus, as well as a friendly student body and great academic programs. About 8-9,000 students undergraduates attend SRU, which makes the school just big enough that you can see a new person everyday, but still have a few familiar faces in the crowd.The town is small, and there isn't much to do on the weekends, but the school is located about 15 minutes away from the Grove City shopping outlets and Morraine State Park, so it's not impossible to find something to do.
