I spent one year at this university, I came in here expecting to meet a lot of people, have a lot of friends… for like the fist I was meeting a lot of people, then after people just stay in their clicks. And unless you smoke or like to get drunk its kinda hard to make friends (most of the time, although a lot of people would disagree with me on that). Their are a good amount of extra curricular activities, and intramural programs and their are usually movies on most weekends. Freshman dorms pretty much suck but after you get past them the rest of the dorms are alright. The campus although all concrete, I think doesn't look too bad. The kids are crazy, they destroy everything mainly why the freshman dorms are trashed and probably why there's no student center which I wish there was. Transportation is pretty good, but honestly where the hell are you gonna go. Outside the campus there's a bunch of violent high crime cities. However there is a mall and some good stores (target, walmart, cvs…). The Campus has one Bank of America ATM so if you have like citizens or anything else it would be wise to switch over. The food is good, and I love the dinning hall so I cant complain there. Weekends suck, everyone goes home and its basically like a concrete wasteland. There are some fraternities no houses though, I rushed for like 5 of em didn't get in to any. Sigma tao are some crazy dudes so watch out, phi kap and theta delta are pretty chill, and Sigma Phi Rho is also pretty good, its pretty small and predominantly black. To sum it up basically I would say good education, BAD social life.
