Slippery Rock University Reviews
Review Slippery Rock University
Slippery Rock University will always have a special place in my heart. There were so many memories and friendships that have lasted through thick and thin. It is where I learned so much about myself and how to push myself. I also learned that I wasn't just a number, but I mattered. A professor not in my major or minor, but instead my Intro to Dance professor who recently passed away this year showed me what it was like to be appreciated. He started every class by making us repeated after him, "WOW! Today is a great day to be alive." He had a way to get his point across, but also knew how to talk to us as adults and let us know he cared. One of the most touching things he ever said to me, was on the day of my graduation. He saw me, mind you I only had him for one class my freshman year and it was an auditorium size class, and he came over to give me a congratulatory hug and looked me in the eye said, "I am proud of you." That was all he needed to say to bring tears to my eyes.
The Dorms are on the newer side and are the perfect home away from home. Each room has individually controlled heating and cooling, carpeted floors, and drywall wall not cinder blocks! It makes it feel like a cozy space! Having your own bathroom in college is a blessing, you'll thank yourself for not getting a traditional dorm. The walls are paper thin though and you'll become very close to your neighbors beside, beneath, and above you since you'll hear everything they do. It's a good experience and you'll be very cozy.
Greek life is a great way to make new friends and meet new people. This coming year I have decided to rush and I am very excited about it! Many of my friends joined a sorority and love it. From the the themed parties to the sisterhood, greek life will be a great addition to my college experience. In addition, you make so many connections through greek life and it will look great on a resume. SRU's greek life isn't huge, so it isn't a big deal if you are in them, or aren't. Overall, greek life is great at SRU.
