Good School Once You Finally Get Connected – I am a film student and it is going pretty well. I do wish the department had more students because then the school would take us more seriously and give us what we need, but it is a close department. I also wish that it was based more on talent instead of names because there are some talented people but they are not thought of when it comes to advanced films because they couldn't get into the right classes at the right time until now because the film school is so small. Once you are connected it is a great program, but it is hard to be successful in the program unless you are a select few.
The professors are wonderful and know a lot about film and are willing to help you succeed as well as the other students. Everyone works close together. There may not be a ton of people and we may not make as many connection, but the connections we do make will be strong ones.
Need to Focus on College, Not High School – It is hard to get financial aid, but once they start to work with you, they are really nice and understanding. I think they should focus more on grades you get now and what you achieve now since high school is behind us. I know several people who were great students in high school and are getting a lot of money from the school but are terrible students now. Other than that the financial office here is great.
I Love the Rules We Have – I don't think any of the rules we have are too strict. There are not a ton of rules, but I love the rules we have.
I Enjoy It – I enjoy that there isn't a ton of parties happening. I have not even heard of parties, which makes me happy. I wish there was a local train station in walking distance so students could go off campus to local attractions without having a car.
Housing Is Okay – I enjoyed my freshman housing, but it wasn't anything special. I enjoy the mods, but they are kind of falling apart. After freshman year, people want to live off campus because of prices.
Games Are Fun – The games are fun, but I think the school could advertise sports more and make people want to go. The football games have great turnouts, but I went to a guys' basketball game last year and there were no more than 40 of us. It would be fun if they got people excited about several sports.
Concerned About Safety – Not only is off-campus housing expensive, but it may not be safe. As it is, it's not safe walking around campus or just off-campus at times, and being off-campus would make me feel even more concerned than I am now.
