Khrystine - 10/08/2021

It's a decent school, especially if you are not looking to go to an extremely large campus. It is in a pretty location, and there's a lot of opportunities to do things on campus as well as in the surrounding area. There's a lot of shopping, including a nearby bookstore that may come in handy for novels needed in English.

Kayla - 09/01/2020

School life is great. The teachers are great. I like the location. I don't have to drive too much. Everything you need is right there at your disposal. All your buildings aren't too far away so you can walk but if you don't want to you can drive, ride your bike, or skate.

  14. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    One stereotype that I hear about the students at my school is that we are all underachievers, which is absolutely false. Another stereotype I often hear about our school in general is that it is just a dumping ground for transfer students from larger schools who didn't quite meet the high standards of said school (hence all the underachievers). While we do have a lot of students that transferred from larger schools, the term "dumping ground" could not be farther from the truth. The transfer students that I've met have all told me that they enjoy the community environment that you don't really feel when you're in a classroom with 100+ people. They also seemed more than able to excel in their chosen field of study. If anything, our school is more like a stepping stone than a dumping ground. A lot of our students return to pursue Graduate and Doctoral degrees. There are students who will get those degrees from larger schools, but that usually only happens if the degree is something obscure and not offered here, like a PhD in Dog Whispering or something ( I don't believe any school has that degree program, but you get my point).

  15. What are the academics like at your school?

    No, most professors do not know students' names. I feel that professors only get to know you if they want to. Class participation depends on how the teacher teaches and if everyone is engaged in the class. My major is middle school education 4th-8th English/Science.
