  • Mostly athletes stay in the dorms, but they are all content in the living condition. They all become like family because of the small environment and makes them more comfortable…

  • I don't live on campus. I commute from out of town. But I hear the dorms are nice. I always see the students from the dorms all hanging out together…

    The cafeteria is decent if you don't have time to go somewhere for lunch. There is an awesome sandwich shop down the street from the school, All In The Sandwich. Get the Dutch bread!
