Health & Safety:
The campus really does a great job of making everyone feel safe and healthy.

The weather is amazing, and since the dorms are relatively close to classes, even bad weather is hardly worth a fuss.

Guys & Girls:
The restriction of the religion certainly shows in the great quality of the guys on campus.

I honestly don't know what the off-campus housing is like. Everyone I know lives on campus - it's a small school, and it's so nice it's hardly surprising.

The off-campus dining is passing, but not outstanding.

I don't own a car, so I'm not a great judge, but it seems to be fine.

The atmosphere, the location, and the education are all excellent, but sometimes the education and the financial situation is frustrating.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T00:04:19Z
The nightlife is strongly discouraged for students on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T00:03:07Z
The education is outstanding, but a lot of the times it can get really challenging and frustrating when you can't seem to keep up.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T00:03:07Z
Some of the teachers are past the point of retirement, and the workload is sometimes unreasonable. The turnover is slow. Despite all that, though, the education itself is excellent.

As a school specifically designed for Christian Scientists, we boast a great deal of diversity in everything but religion.

Because of the self-sustainability of the campus, students could conceivably go an entire semester without getting in a car. Field trips are all done in campus-supplied vans.

Principia College is really ahead of other campuses as far as beauty and eco-friendliness.
College Sophomore 2013-10-28T23:57:33Z
Drinking at any age is discouraged, and drug use is forbidden. In contrast, everyone is very friendly, and it creates an honest, safe environment.

There isn't really a Greek-specific life on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-10-28T23:54:33Z
They provide a lot of scholarship support, but they didn't notify me that I wasn't completely covered until I was past due on a balance.

Network reliability is high, speed is average, and they encourage every student to at least have access to the provided email system.

Drinking is strongly discouraged. Smoking is forbidden, and anything else is strictly prohibited.

Principia has rules against drug use, and most people follow it. The only drug you will find is weed, which a small amount of students use. Alcohol is generally more common at Principia, though compared to other schools is still very rare. As far a pressure, there is none.

You'll Get Used to It – Many students don't realize how many options there really are at Principia College. There are always vegetarian choices to choose from, and the Dining workers are very considerate when preparing the meals. The Dining Hall is open all day so that students with difficult schedules are able to get food, and there is a C-Store available almost 24 hours, including the hours that the Dining Hall is closed. There is a good variety of meals here, as well as the availability of the Pub, which is a grill located close to the Dining Hall.

Religious Liberal Arts – Since Principia College is a Liberal Arts College, it offers specific majors and does not offer some majors that other colleges might. The professors are all very interested in the subjects that they teach and really do work extremely hard to make it the best experience they can for their students. The campus is small, so it is an easy commute from class to class or dorm to class. It is easy to register and academic advisors make it much easier to make sure your schedule will be possible for you to follow without getting too deep in class work and commitments. It is possible to create a special major, but there is a process, and those who choose to do so are students who really care about that major topic. Popular areas of study are mass communications, math, business administration, education and biology.

Plenty of activities daily, friendly atmosphere, scenic location.

Limited to none, other than on-campus apartments for non-trad students.

The overall campus consists of 11 non residential buildings: 2 athletic facilities, 4 class buildings, a library, 2 art studios, an auditorium, a dining hall. The facilities at the college that I currently attend are very nicely kept. Our library is really nice there are numerous places to go and have that quieter setting to do some studying. That being said, not only do you have the opportunity to study in the library but you also have the opportunity to find a classroom to just study in because the buildings where classes are held are open 24 hours that includes the art studios. There are two athletic facilities. One is where basketball games are held and the other things like swim meets and indoor track. The athletic facilities are very nice inside and out but unfortunately neither is open 24 hours. The campus is really small and the community is just as small which could be a plus but just as easily a minus. The experience you have on a campus and in a community like this one is every bit of much of what you bring to the table.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
