A lot of students I know drink. It seems to be the only thing for them to do. I don't drink, personally, but a lot of other students do. And a lot of them admit to smoking marijuana. I don't do that either, but I have noticed some of my fellow classmates attending class with bloodshot eyes and others making comments, "oh, he's high."

Newberry College has some opportunities for students to do things at night that do not involve drinking. As for the town itself, Newberry does not have many options for fun when not attending classes.

The parking is not very convenient for commuter students. You can pay to have your own space, but on-campus students get first choice, so you may end up getting a space that is far from the buildings where you have classes.

I am happy with my Business program because it sets me up with a lot of options to pursue. If I had to go back and do it all over again I may have wanted to challenge myself a little more and get into biology or something along those lines, but in the end I am pleased with the path I chose. There are many different programs to get into though, Newberry has an excellent nursing program, and I have many friends that are involved in it.

The was not really a hard process to get into the Business program. I just asked my advisor to be a part of it and I was enrolled in the classes I would need to take to get my degree.

From what I know about off-campus living, there are plenty of houses available around Newberry for students to rent. The prices vary, but they are entirely manageable with roommates. Off-campus housing allows you to have much more freedom and options to have pets and use an oven.

Newberry is a pretty small town so getting around isn't that big of a deal. There are busses if you need to get around, but walking could work just as well too to get some exercise in. If you are wanting to go to a different town, a car would be your best option.

In Newberry there are plenty of houses to find. The school is surrounded by neighborhoods as opposed to being in the middle of downtown. Houses can vary in size and in worth, but there is usually a couple to choose from. The main problem would be looking for apartments, there are not many apartments. But the houses are usually cheap compared to looking to rent a house pretty much anywhere else in the US.

It depends on which dorm you live. There are two dorms that are really nice to live in, Walker Hall and Oakland Mills. The rest are find however not nearly as nice. For males it's often unclean because a lot of the guys don't really pick up after themselves. But we have a custodial that does plenty of good work to keep things clean.

While it's mostly white from what I can see, there's also of plenty of other different races. It's a Lutheran school, but it's not a vast majority of Lutherans it's a nice mix. I've also made friends with people with different sexual orientation, but it's seems to be a small minority.

It is spring and getting hot yet, the heat is still on. Also the bathrooms are not the greatest. The freshman dorms have thin walls so you can hear what people around you are saying. What is cool though is that the college uses old buildings that have history to them, one building was used as a hospital in the civil war!

The campus is too small for campus transportation but having a car is very convenient. If there are students are like me who don't own a car, it's hard to get around if your friends aren't willing to take you.

The current athletics are wonderful but if they offered more sports it would be better.

There really is not a huge nightlife here. We do not have any bars in town since they closed down Blue moon last semester. We do have a few frats so one of them has a party on the weekends, especially during football season. Generally all of the Newberry students attend the frat parties since we do not have any other option here in town.

We are a very international friendly school with over 20 different countries represented here! I feel as though our school is very diverse and there is not a problem that follows that truth. Acceptance is high and favored here.

Unfortunately there is not a lot to do for the college aged group of students here in the city of Newberry. There are many fast food places, dollar stores and a walmart as the only source of grocery store. There are not shopping options nor is there a theater or bowling alley. To get any of those things you must drive at least 25 to 30 mins away.
The locals do love the college students though and enjoy when school is in session.
Also this town is deemed the safest town in the state of South Carolina so its nice to know I am safe.

There are several computers in the library and any time I needed to use one, there were always several available. A majority of students have laptops so there isn't much competition to use a computer in the library.
College Junior 2013-02-20T03:04:56Z
There isn't any public transportation available, but it isn't really necessary because the campus is small and all together. However, it would be nice to have transportation to and from Columbia, considering Columbia has more fun things to do than Newberry.

There should be more space for residential parking. Our school is small so there are not a lot of places to park, but every year more students are enrolling. However, they say they are working on improving this.
College Sophomore 2013-02-13T21:30:04Z
most of the options are fast food, but it is helpful for a struggling college student with no money.
College Sophomore 2013-02-13T21:29:11Z
the small class sizes and religious aspect of the school are very valuable, you make friends easily and quickly and you never want to go home because you are afraid you will miss out on the fun.
College Sophomore 2013-02-13T21:28:13Z
everything on campus is pretty close by and user friendly, everything is just old.
College Sophomore 2013-02-13T21:24:27Z
parties are mostly thrown by students in dorms but are not particularly fun places to just hang out, they are more like drunken rages.
College Sophomore 2013-02-12T00:58:43Z
Newberry college helps you as best as they can with financial aid, but its still very expensive
College Junior 2013-02-11T04:21:10Z
