Student at This School - Grad Year 2011

College Life Rating

Great social scene, five points provides fun nightlife with a handful of bars to choose from. Campus police are.always.around. State of.the art fitness and.athletic center are great for intramurals and for fun. Club sports such as baseball football and lacrosse are offered. Lake murray is not.too far away.

Former Student - Last Attended 2006

College Life Rating

The athletic atmosphere is electrifying, a one of a kind experience that must be absorbed. Weekend activities are endless with great weather and lots of places to go within a 2 hr drive. Clubs and nightlife are dangerous because of the amount of insanly acting under age drinking and dirty cops all within a couple of miles of each other.
