While there are some minorities represented on campus, it is still a heavily Caucasian campus.
They've Got Your Back – Financial aid at Jewell is extremely helpful. If the FAFSA isn't going to provide you any funding, Jewell will. Scholarship amounts are high and plentiful - almost every student at Jewell has at least a $10,000 a year scholarship. Also, you can compete for higher scholarships as an incoming student.
Jewell has a very big 'family' base since we are so small. The student body is diverse in interests, hobbies, affiliations, and majors, but we can all connect easily with the fact that we are Jewell Cardinals. People are very rarely ostracized here.
Diversity in Fashion – You'll find all sorts of students at Jewell: some rednecks/country, preppy, hipster, etc. The student body is diverse in their dress but mostly look alike in terms of race and body type. Most students are white and are of average build.
Not So Bad, Stan. Our campus student affairs emphasizes our honor code that every first year is required to sign. It basically states that you will be an upstanding member of our community and won't cheat, etc.etc. I think that punishments are extremely correlated to how bad the act was. That being said, many punishments, such as parking tickets, can be revoked if you appeal with a good enough reason.
Drugs Are Not a Big Deal Here – People do drugs on campus but mostly just marijuana and even the ones that smoke it are good students and keep their drug taking on the 'down low.' Drugs in no way dominate the scene at our campus, but I'm sure there are the select few that partake in more heavy things, although I doubt they do that on campus since so many people live closeby and there's downtown Kansas City.
The Greek life at our school is excellent. We are a small liberal arts private college, so Greek takes up 1/3 of the student population. All the women live in a new state-of-the-art complex together, so rivalries are non-existent unless they are petty short ones. Fraternities houses are well-kept by their alums. All of our Greek organizations are close and respectful to each other and to each other's philanthropies. It's definitely a different, more homey, feel than at a big university. That being said, we are national organizations; we don't have 'pretend' Greek like 'oh, this dorm is known at the Epsilon House.' Our Greek life is legitimate.
