I love the atmosphere of a smaller school! Classes have a more personal feel with the ability to contact the teacher at any time. Students most often are very friendly. There are also many events that are happening throughout the semester run by the Student Government Association. All of the officers are also very friendly. Although I'm not a member, I have stopped by the SGA office and asked if they needed help for an event that was planned for that day, and they were more than happy to let me help. I am also a member of the Biology Club. Again, I am not an officer, but have been helping run bake sales, events/field trips, and have represented Biology Club for open club meetings that the SGA holds. These open club meetings are open to everyone in a club and are a great way to stay active in what's happening in the school. I really recommend joining a club or attending a field trip you are interested in! I went to the King Tut Exhibition and the Bodies Exhibit this semester and they were both great experiences that I'm glad to have. Being active in the school makes the college experience a lot more enjoyable in my opinion.Read More
I love it at this college! There are so many student activities to participate in. There are tons of clubs, and if there isn't one that you like, all you have to do is create enough interest in it, get an on staff advisor, like a professor, and then submit it to the Student Government Association for approval for funding. There are Honor societies and math clubs, art clubs and christian youth ministries, the variety is crazy! Also, the Student government association plans events practically daily. There was a Starlit Ball, which was so amazing and so much fun! It was like a college prom... but so much better! There is also an end of semester barbecue where students are given a free lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. There are also many seminars, guest speakers like Rachel from the MTV show the real world, a health and wellness fair with raffles and free massages, ice cream socials, sports games, student produced plays in the beautiful new performing arts center, st. patty's day refreshment, mardi gras parties, big red chair photos ( i have mine on my keyring!), bake sales, free concerts, and who knows what else they will plan next semester. I went on a school chartered trip into NYC to visit the metropolitan museum of art for only 15$! When it's nice out, we can eat lunch outside and play soccer in the fields, or walk around the campus which was an old monastery and still has some of the beautiful stained glass windows and architecture to show it. There are six buildings on campus, and plenty of room to roam around. There is a gym and a workout room, and a graphic arts lab, and several areas around campus just for students to hang out- like the game room, the galleria, and pretty much every place there was room for a couch. There is campus-wide wireless, which is good for when i have a report to do last minute. Also, there are many computers available, and printers, and a very well equipped library that also has a beautiful view out of its windows. it even has private study rooms. There are two lakes surrounded by landscaping, and a 9/11 memorial on the main lawn. The center courtyard has beautiful cherry trees and red maples, and the art gallery always has student artwork displayed. The cafeteria has huge windows so you can bask in the warm glow of the sun while it's freezing outside, and look out at the city since the building is on a hill. The food is great, too! A little expensive for a college kid to buy every day, but still tasty. There are also a bunch of restaurants not even a two miles away, so in just a two minute drive, you have more choices than you'd ever need. I love it at this school. The atmosphere is amazing and the activities make it even better.Read More
