Small class sizes, great academics, all classes are taught by professors and the majority respond to email within 24 hours and are willing to meet outside of class time. SNU has an excellent academic reputation in OK & even some surrounding states. The majority of professors are great at recognizing that students are individuals and sometimes unexpected events happen, while there are a few who forget these things. Being a small school, you're able to know the majority of students there. Being a private college, the cost is really high, $30,000 a year without financial aid, if you were to get all the federal/state financial aid, loans, and some school based scholarships, you're still stuck with close to $10,000 to pay out of pocket. Living off campus saves a lot of money, but have to apply to live off-campus, those guidelines are strict, and the university owns/rents most of the houses nearby. On-campus housing is enjoyable depending on your personality & budget.There are a variety of dorms. The dorm with the best community atmosphere is the traditional one.The newest dorm, Hills, feels very closed off with multiple heavy doors to get to your actual room. A lot of the spaces/amenities advertised (study & classrooms and community kitchen) have a lot of restrictions. To live in Hills it costs an extra $1-2,000. Each dorm has a resident director & resident assistants and it helps to add to the community feel, but resident assistants are hit or miss, some of them are great, have open door hours, floor parties, make rounds, really try to get to know each resident, etc., while it seems like others are just doing it for the free room/living stipend, try to get around the job requirements, and seem to be in that position because of who they know, which is the way a lot of things on campus. NSI for freshman is nice to get acquainted, but it was starting to get long & in a sense forced upon students. Staff are friendly. The campus / area is really safe. Good health center.
