Am learning a lot
because what I don't get I joined program called TRIO and it's for tutoring and it helps me a lot at least the first days; we were kind of skimming, but i learned .
Am enjoying being here
because I feel safe, I get a lot of help in everything I have a question, I love the way I feel being in this university.
Bang for the buck
if it's about the financial need I think it was a lot help because I come from a poor family and don't have the money so I can get and education.
Tips for prospective students
join in as many activities as you can, without exceeding yourself, and I mean that you have time to do your homework and enjoy yourself,and not just wanting time to do your homework,but to hang around.
Great for these types of students

Great student atmosphere.
Great amount of support on campus.
Amazing Community
Tips for prospective students
Apply for any activity possible.
Stay informed on policies and deadlines, late fees will sneak up.
Academic Rigor
It can be difficult yet the university supplies support and the professors don't mind lending a hand when things get tough.
Dorm Life
Don't expect things to get to crazy, the dorm life on campus is more casual and laid-back. Things can get out of hand but campus police always finds a way to take charge of the situation.
Food and Dining
On campus dinning is just what you'd expect from any university, not many choices but if a quick meal is what you need you'll find it on campus. Around town there are plenty of amazing local restaurants that are open late and delicious all within 3 miles from the university.
What to do for fun
It is a small city but there are sports year round, there is a professional baseball team, indoor football league, professional soccer team, and the university has a sports program that includes baseball, softball, soccer, golf, cross-country, and basketball. The university also has concerts, shows, and fitness classes thought the year.
Bang for the buck
You will definitely get your moneys worth here. Does not even come close to other universities when it comes to cost.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
You will have to learn about from experience.
Great for these types of students
Great for students who want to a great education at a low price. A laid back student who doesn't mind having some fun from time to time.
Clubs and Activities
There are a few clubs for students they are a lot of fun some hold concerts while others have midnight paintball, scavenger hunts and other activities for its members.
Greek Life
Don't think this like the movies, the university is new to the Greek life so it is in its growing stage but they do have a lot of thing for its members.
Campus Safety
The one thing this university has is safety. Campus police is top of every rule. Keep an eye out for them they can be your best friend or foe.

The school is on a beautiful campus that is very well maintained. The classes are strict and expect a lot from the students so the students can succeed down the road. The faculty takes care of the students and the school is a great atmosphere.
Tips for prospective students
Come ready to have a good time with a lot of student activities and everything you need to succeed on campus.
Academic Rigor
It is a demanding school and the grades you want you have to earn. Grades are not easy and you're expected to do your work. There is a no-tolerance policy for academic cheating also.
Dorm Life
The dorm life is sweet. Living in the dorms is like living in a hotel. The dorms are so clean and nice and gives you a warm feeling and a feeling of security also.
Food and Dining
Everyday there is different options in the cafeteria. The food is always good and there is always several options to choose from. If you do not want to eat in the cafe you can pick from a grille, a quick stop sort of like a gas station, subway, Starbucks, and a pizza restaurant.
What to do for fun
There are plenty of activites to do at school. There is two pools on campus, pool tables sand volleyball courts, soccer fields, a recreational center with weight room and two open gyms.
Bang for the buck
For the nice campus, friendly people, and hard but effective teaching skills, this is a great bang for your buck when looking for the right school. You'll get your money worth through the classes but also the famous is one of the nicest and well maintained around!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
It seems like everyday there are events and school challenges and give-aways on the campus. Chick-fil-a is always on campus and there is always concerts being held around the school.
Great for these types of students
For a student looking for a nice place to study and get good grades and also looking to have a good time with a lot of fun and never run out of things to do!
Clubs and Activities
There is Greek week and athletic competitions and eating competitions! There are chick-fil-a activities, sports competitions, give-away competitions!
Campus Safety
The campus security is always on duty and always patrolling the grounds checking to make sure everything is the it is suppose to be.

The landscape is beautiful and makes living on campus feel like home. Most teachers have real concern for student success. Plenty of campus resources which really help.
Tips for prospective students
I would recommend using campus resources as a way to succeed. Get involved and become apart of the maroon mob by going to sporting events. Also explore the town, the school is off from the town but the town has much to offer.
Academic Rigor
Classes are challenging but if you have a major you like you will do fine. Complete lower level classes first to prepare you for upper level classes and be prepared to do some homework!
Dorm Life
The village is great. Apartment style living with full kitchen. The dorms are two rooms with single beds with a shared bathroom. They are clean and they constantly have things going on to get students to meet others.
Food and Dining
Recently rebuilt with a Subway and pizza place on campus. Food is good with fresh fruit daily. Breakfast is wonderful!
What to do for fun
There is many cool places, including downtown which is close to the boarder of Mexico. Also many clubs and bars which provide fun.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Our school is trying to get more school spirit so pep rally's and bbq cookouts are common. Also get many free t-shirts.
Great for these types of students
Students who make the best out of where they are. People who enjoy a new cultural mixed place.
Clubs and Activities
athletics, community service, sorority, photography ect.
Greek Life
Not as big as other school but still are students who participate, no greek houses though.
Campus Safety
Very safe, on call police as well as oncampus. emergency buttons all around campus as well.
