The equipment is fair; not entirely modern, nor outdated. The weight room is usually either overcrowded or virtually empty (there is only one), and there isn't a schedule for sports team so others are bombarded by their takeover. Events and within the cafeteria, students are usually segregated into their teams, then everyone else. Students sparing attend sporting events, especially if they're friends with someone on that team, and when a team is facing its biggest competition. Moreover, I've recently been given the responsibility of the president of the weight room, which we call the Fitness Center, and I'm looking to make significant changes (scheduling, equipment, cleaning materials, entertainment, etc.).
Review Davis & Elkins College
I am from a NYC, so I was fairly depressed when I settled into this tiny town (surprisingly, the area is referred to as a city!), especially since I've never been so far from home. It wasn't too long before I familiarized myself with the school and got acquainted with other students. The school isn't very diverse, although there are a great deal of international students. In all 3 years of my attending, thus far, I am the only NYer. Side note: you'll need a car to get away--Walmart is across a highway. Overall, once you get acquainted, it isn't so bad. NOTE: I am a vegetarian, and the cafeteria meals aren't diversed.
Alumni are very involved current activities and insist on meeting current students. Career center is helpful in ensuring a student gets work study, even if the field they chose was no longer available, and the rep assists with resume etiquette, off-campus housing, and scouting local jobs. All other facilities and offices are moderate; they assist in their fields and are faintly educated on that of another office's description.
