Francis Marion University Reviews
Francis Marion University is for chill, relaxed individuals who don't mind intense classes. Student life is moderate due to a lack of student involvement on campus but it is improving. Sororities and fraternities aren't entirely big on campus due to the lack of student involvement as well but they are in the background of most events. Our sports teams are all pretty good and are gaining support from students by the years. Francis Marion's campus is nature based and has sort of a plantation home theme to go with the university being named after a Revolutionary War hero. Overall, the university is fairly decent but could improve on its student involvement aspect.
We recently got a new athletic complex and it is really great! I have attended baseball games, soccer games, and basketball games. Our women's basketball team made it to nationals this past year and did very well. During homecoming, the fan support is top notch! We start the homecoming day off with every club and sport at school decorating golf carts and having everyone in the clubs and sports march around campus where they end at the University Center. All throughout the day there are tons of festivities as our Men's and Women's basketball teams play the homecoming game, which we won this past year. The only thing I would like different about our athletics is a football team, we have a small school so we don't have on , bu tI wish we did.
I feel very safe on my campus, the only reason I rated this topic as it's bad, is because of the lack of effort our campus police put forth. I have only been in contact with one police officer who seemed to actually care about his job and the well being of the students on campus. Most of the police do not try and help the students at school. I have had a few different situations where I had to go to campus police about something that was going on and they were not helpful at all and never fixed nor actually tried to solve anything. Also one of the police ladies spoke very rudely to me with an attitude when I was going to her for help, and nothing ever got done. I started out as the victim and she basically told me she could not do anything to help me and tried to turn the blame around on me. Every student I have talked with about campus police have never had anything god to say about them. I am not satisfied at all with campus police! Very disappointed.
