    Campus Safety

    The campus does have security poles available in the parking lots for public use. The campus has good lighting and great security staff who patrols the campus during the day and late at night. They will bike with you or walk you anywhere you need to go at night if you feel insecure about your safety or completely unsafe.

    Greek Life

    Usually freshmen aren't allowed to join a fraternity or sorority their first semester of college. There are fraternities and sororities available to join. I am not at all sure how their living arrangements work, but there are no frat or sorority house on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    The great thing about this campus being so new and still developing is that anyone can create a club. There are also so many activities that you can participate in as well.

    Great for these types of students

    This campus is great for students who enjoy learning in smaller groups. It's great for students who get overwhelmed by huge crowds. I feel like anyone who thinks they are different will find that they fit in here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Our campus celebrates Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. This year a group dressed up and performed a ceremony and cleansed people with sage. It's not unusual at all, but it's a little different. I've never seen anything like this in real life. It was really interesting and nice.

    Bang for the buck

    Most definitely

    What to do for fun

    The campus always has activities going on for various clubs, organizations, societies and more. It's simple to get involved and learn new things. There is just so many fun activities that happen all the time you just have to apply yourself.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is open from 7am to 8pm. There are 3 food chains inside. The food is very good, not too over priced. If you stay on campus you'll need to buy the meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    I love living in the dorms! If you plan on living in the dorm make sure to use the Please Don't Snore website provided to explore your roommate matches and confirm with whoever you choose. You can also request your suite mates if you live in a shared room. The dorms have individual study rooms, group study rooms, a game/social room and a very nice gym. The gym is the only room open 24 hrs though. However, there's a 24 hr. lab for studying in another building close by. Anyways, dorm life is very fun and fair. There are visitation hours everyday including the weekend. Students living in dorms don't have a curfew though. Don't lose your key though.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor depends on what courses you take. My music appreciation course is not very rigorous compared to my calculus I course.

    Tips for prospective students

    Consider what you want to major in because they might not offer your major. Also consider what learning environment is best for you when making a decision. My classes consist of no more than 30 students. Also take advantage of Rate My Professor.com

    In three sentences

    I absolutely love the campus, the people and the curriculum. This campus will give you a support group with all the resources you need in order to succeed. I love it! Thanks for reading.
