In my opinion, the academics are very effective. I am a Child and Family Services major, so I can't speak for everyone, but I enjoy most of my classes as well as the professors. The campus is gorgeous and the on-campus housing has a fun environment. Overall, the campus is fairly safe, but could use some better lighting in certain locations. Some places have great good, but the dining centers could really use some improvement, especially for those with dietary needs. The local area and student life are both great! There are over 800 clubs on campus so there are opportunities for everyone to get involved!
