There are very few activities, groups and friend circles. Everyone attending from the main land will feel as though it is difficult to make friends or feel socially accepted. Islanders in general have a lack of openness twoards non-islanders. I attended this university for 2 years and couldn't take it anymore. The website looks promising but do not let the view or beach make your decision. Know that this campus' faculty is so unhelpful, rude, and generally inconsiderate of the students needs. The facilities date back to the 80's with little improvement since, including the laundry room which is typically broken or unusable.In my experiences over the 2 years I attended, I had to force or demand services that other universities would willingly give or be helpful with. I strongly recommend spending a semester visiting as an exchange student before enrolling. (by the way i didn't get my acceptance letter until 2 months after the school year had started, that should have been a clear warning to stay away) You will not feel like you are getting the education you are paying for. Generally as far as athletics, basketball is the only sport recognized or supported, my boyfriend ran track and was denied the scholarship promised to him at the end of the semester.
Review University of the Virgin Islands
The athletics in my school are very great, progressive and competent in every sports that the school participate in except for football in which I'm in and also to which one of our opponents is better than ours which cause that we haven't win a championship for football in a very long time, but in all of the other sports we always win and bring the trophy home with us whether is in soccer (in which I participate in), basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball etc... Actually, just the year before last year, we won every championship sport, except football just like I said. All of those were able to accomplish cause of our team performances, from our fan support, school spirit and our athletic facilities and mostly the most important the support of our community.
The school is mostly west-indian. Its difficult to be a "mainlander" in this campus, and don't even consider being openly gay here. I have seen on multiple occasions gay men being called "faggots", a "disgrace" and "not a man" I have even seen many islanders openly bash gay men and call them disgusting. I was horrified to witness this, especially since being a lesbian, or a gay female is totally tolerated and even encouraged. Only gay men are discriminated against and not gay women.
