As a transfer student, I have had a bit of a different experience than most students. The ResLife system here can be a bit of a struggle at times, although I do believe that they work with you the best that they can. Housing options can be pretty spectacular once they are made available to you, but many are a fair walk from campus center. Most of the professors I have had in my two semesters here have been very engaging and passionate about what they do. They have been open to helping me and working with me when necessary. However, of my eight professors in that time (one of whom I have taken two classes with), I would have to say that four of them were less than clear, interesting, or helpful. The workload can often be overwhelming, and professors are not always open to helping you manage this. As a psychology major, I take a lot of science classes, but I am very passionate about what I study and put in a lot of effort. An important thing to know before coming here is that the school as an institution does not believe in curving or grade inflation, with a few exceptions. This often leads to an unexpected shock.
The campus is pretty and the weather, although rainy and windy at times, is usually beautiful. The sunrises and sunsets over the battlefield are among the best I have ever had the privilege to witness. The food is decent, although very rich and very repetitive.
As a psych major, I can speak briefly to that department. Finding research, if you truly want it, is not difficult. However, there are many requirements you must meet before being able to do research with the department, which can make it difficult. However, every psych professor I have had the honor to work with has been incredibly passionate and kind, and I would not imagine having worked anywhere else. This department is strong, and going here for a psychology degree will guarantee you an excellent education, especially if you are interested in research.
