I love the diverse community that make up the student body on campus! There are so many people from different towns, states, and even countries. On top of this, each person sports a myriad of interests, classes, and work experience. Students are very ambitious at this campus, which allows you to surround yourself with people who strive to be the very best at whatever they apply themselves to. Ultimately this pushes you to challenge what you know, defend what you believe in, and in the end, make you a better person.
I am currently a student-athlete and athletics offer many perks as well as responsibilities. As an athlete you get priority scheduling before all other students which is a nice perk. There are also varsity athlete- only weight rooms. With that being said there are still many areas for those not on varsity teams to work out. A brand new $100 million dollar athletic center will be completed in the fall of 2017! Also being a student-athlete comes with more academic meetings and mandatory study hall hours, but it offers more advising to help you stay on track and offer opportunities.
