Freezing, sun doesn't shine.

You will pre-game in your dorm to walk outside and find out that there are no parties or that the cops have shown up and its not even 9pm.

Scholar ship I received was great.

The football team is awful.
College Freshman 2013-12-02T00:53:04Z
The town people are very scary. Its freezing cold for the majority of the year and there is absolutely nothing to do.
College Freshman 2013-12-02T00:51:13Z
Gym is lacking a little bit and I don't understand why the library is in the corner of campus. The food is below average.

Guys & Girls:
We have a large proportion of really attractive, nice, smart people on our campus. There is a good guy to girl ratio as well. People are generally nice and willing to talk to you!

There is a decent amount of diversity on campus, however most students are middle to upper middle class heterosexual kids. There is a good mix of males to females. Minority groups do have clubs and our Center for Diversity and Social Justice works with a mentoring program for minority students. There is also good acceptance of LGBTQ students on campus. I don't know much about political beliefs or religious beliefs on campus.

If you are interested in Greek Life, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved. If you have a good GPA it is easy to get into a sorority/fraternity. However, they don't have a huge influence on social stuff-- you don't have to be in one to "be someone" or have fun.

Its a beautiful little college town, and there are nice places to go off campus. However, outside the main street and then the "strip" of malls and fast food restaurants (any store you could possibly want), things are pretty far away. It is a nice rural feel, but there's not a ton to do in the community. What is good is that the school makes up for that with frequent free programming on campus to give the students stuff to do.

There are options to drink if you're into it, but definitely not peer pressure to do it if you don't want to. There are also people who do drugs on campus (mostly pot), but that remains kind of secret. Drugs and underage drinking are heavily enforced, but it is a wet campus, so you can drink when you are 21 or over.
College Junior 2013-11-27T23:12:05Z
I've heard great things about the bar scene, there are a few places to go off campus. For underage drinking, it happens a lot in the dorms or in the sports/sorority/fraternity houses off campus. There are plenty of places to go if you're into that. Otherwise, there is an on campus nightclub that serves drinks to people over 21 (1/hr) and has themed parties every weekend, which are very fun drunk or sober. You can walk everywhere or take the campus provided "Traxportation" shuttle.

I would definitely choose this school if I had to do it all over again. It is a beautiful campus, the teachers really care about the students, and there is a really great community feel to it. The science building is amazing for science majors, and I really love the faculty in my major. I have made lasting friendships that I treasure. There is also really great social programming such as concerts, Fall Frenzy and Spring Weekend Carnival, plus parties at the on-campus nightclub (that serves free alcohol to 21 and over students!- 1 per hour). It is also really easy to get involved in meaningful extracurriculur activities. I love the campus traditions, such as the Thanksgiving dinner where faculty, staff, and even the president serve turkey and traditional foods. There are so many great things about this school, I could go on and on. Love it!

I had a really good experience getting financial aid from this school compared to all of the other schools I applied to. They got back to me right away, and awarded me a fair merit award. Additionally, I was able to meet and talk personally with the Financial Aid director, who was willing to work with me to get additional aid when I needed it. They are also super helpful when it comes to funding study abroad.

There is a free shuttle each Saturday that runs to the local malls and stores like Walmart and Target on the strip. There is also a zip car service, but I think it might be pretty expensive. The best way to get to places nearby (like on Market Street) is with a friend's car or by walking (it's not too far!). The school also provides break shuttle services to Philly and Harrisburg that you have to pay for but its convenient if you need to catch a bus or train home.

I think they have a good balance of strictness going on. They are serious about things like underage drinking and drug use, but they often won't give you issues if you are being only a little loud. However, if you're being obvious or stupid (drinking in public, destroying property, streaking, etc) you will be caught and disciplined. RAs are pretty chill for the most part, they just expect you to respect the other people living in the dorms. Unfortunately, the public safety officers can be kinda mean with parking tickets-- make sure you know where students can and can't park.

There are a variety of types of food you can find off campus, from local bar food (BJ's Steakhouse is the best!) within walking distance to fast food near the malls on the strip (farther away, you have to have a car). Dawn's knows where its at with their awesome subs, breakfast options, cheap prices, and they also stay open until 2 am on weekends!

I really like the Environmental Science program at my school. You get personalized attention from the teachers, and actually get to know them really well because the department is really small. The new science building is amazing, and Environmental Sciences has our own floor! Plus, the best eatery on campus is on our floor (Ele's). There are also opportunities for research with the professors!
College Junior 2013-11-27T22:43:35Z
The Central Curriculum requirements are good for getting you to take classes outside of your comfort zone. Our school also has a ton of great teachers-- I haven't had a professor yet that I didn't like! The registration process is amazingly easy and stress-free, just make sure to involve your academic advisor during your first semester registration.
College Junior 2013-11-27T22:34:36Z
Food is better here than other campuses I've been to, but not the best. There are a lot of different places to eat on campus and Ele's (The Periodic Table) in the basement of the science building is definitely the best! It has Panera Bread style soup and salads and sandwiches. However, it is pretty expensive comparatively. Healthy food options like salads in Benny's can also go over the exchange limit (making you spend flex or cash) if you add protein, which is disappointing. Overall, there is great variety, but limited healthy and vegetarian foods. It is nice that the director of our Food Services is willing to work with students in order to take their feedback into account when making menu changes.

There are computer labs in almost every building, even two in some buildings. The printing quota is 100 pages per print job, so black and white printing is pretty much free! If you ever need to print something in color you can go to the Print Shop where it isn't too terribly expensive. There really isn't much need for a personal printer if you don't plan to be printing in color a LOT. The wireless has been expanded a lot in the past two years to cover all academic buildings as well as all of the residence halls. I think that means that the entire campus is covered now! Speed is good and the connection is pretty reliable. I would recommend bringing a personal computer if only for entertainment reasons, and if you like to do homework after 2 am when the last lab closes.

As long as you read the student handbook and follow the rules, you will have nothing to worry about.

Free transportation is offered to students on Saturdays during the school year starting at 3pm and ending at 7pm. The shuttle takes students to Walmart, the Monroe Marketplace, Weis Store, and the local mall. The shuttle returns to campus on the hour.

The financial aid staff understands and we have a lot of Alumni that provide/donate money for scholarships.

There are a few dining options downtown, but the rest are farther down the strip and you need a car to get there.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
