Great professors and amazing programs! It's a dry campus which is problematic. The atmosphere on campus can be uncomfortable for certain students but groups such as the Freedom Alliance and the Black Student Union are trying to change that.
Overall great school. I love the atmosphere, friendly staff, plenty of activities going on. The café has good food. Small campus, but still plenty going on to entertain students. Offers many academic programs and administrators are very willing to help you succeed.
Class sizes are mostly small, which is great for individualized learning and getting to know your professors. Most of my professors have been super kind and accepting, and I've made a lot of friends through my major and through other friends. I love the theatre program here, and the honors program is small but strong. There is no truly gender neutral housing, which is a definite downside for me as a transgender student, but I love living in Fugate. In my experience, most of the students I've met have been moderate, and most of the professors I've had have been liberal, but there are plenty of people on any point of the spectrum. The strong Christian past of the school did worry me at first, but the religious life on campus is definitely a positive force, and even if people don't necessarily agree with you or accept you, the vast majority are nice to you.
