It's a small school that manages to feel bigger than it is, there's always something to do on campus, and you never have to be bored. I was afraid of a middle of no where school going into it but,...It is very academically rigorous for some majors, especially in the STEM area but your professor are so willing to help out and office hours do a lot for you. I am super involved in the arts on campus specifically in theater. There is a lot of both university run and student run programs as well as so many different dance groupsIn terms of the party scene it can be really fratty, but also there's plenty of people who are not involved and they are not judged for it. I was also scared it would be too much of a party school...I would not have picked a different school doing it again..
