If you choose to come here, expect VERYQuite BrightSocial Work
If you choose to come here, expect VERY small town mentality. Everyone knows your business whether you want them to or not. This is something I'm not used to. If you keep to yourself it gets worse, rumors get spread about you. The class sizes are great, very small for interaction with professors. All my professors know my name and they almost always give participation points with your grade. If you are coming for a Liberal Art Degree then this is the school for you (if you are instate and can't afford to leave) Be aware, if you don't have a car it's 40 minutes to get anywhere! Nothing stays open, the library closes at 11pm and the cafeteria closes at 7:30, coffee shop at 11 as well. Nothing stays open all night to suit your needs except the Student Union Building which only has a couple of TV's and couches with vending machines. It is very cliquish here and if you don't go greek or are in the Art department it is VERY hard to meet people.

I came here because I thought, coming fromBright
I came here because I thought, coming from a big city, that I would enjoy a the slower pace of a small town community. I couldn't have been more incorrect. Everyone will know EVERYTHING about you, and if you keep to yourself it is 100x worse because then they just flat out make things up. The classes are too easy; even though I'm taking 15 hours I am bored out of my mind- and there is NOTHING to do in the "town" unless you want to drive for at least 40 minutes. VERY clique-ish and students are not welcoming. Faculty is a toss-up. My "advising" seems to be simply getting my courses for the next semester approved. Good thing I know what I'm doing. I've had some great professors, but keep in mind this is a LIBERAL arts college- some can be close-minded and rude as well. My major is obviously not the strength of the University, however it has a fantastic Elementary Ed. program. I guess enjoyment of this school depends on your personality, and also your major, but its not for me.
