    Everyone is very friendly and open to others. One thing I will always remember is how courteous students were in traffic on campus. It is easy to find a group of people where you feel like you belong because there are so many activities to participate in. There is something for everyone! You don't feel like you have to be something you are not, and you don't get the feeling that only "rich" kids fit in here.

    There are computer labs everywhere, the library has private study rooms with white boards/table & chairs where you and classmates can study together for a test etc. Some classrooms are new and modern, some are older and nostalgic of the school's beginning. The student union has great food choices and is similar to a food court. They also have a convenient store that has a modern gas station feel that I loved to go to. The dinning hall was very large and all you can eat of an array of choices. My friends and I did not have meal plans but felt like we were treating ourselves when we ate in both places! There are so many dorms on campus now that anyone should be able to find one they are comfortable with.

    There are Christian sororities and fraternities that offer sisterhood/brotherhood for a much better price range than the other greek groups, for those that might not be able to afford it. There are more clubs than I can mention. There is a team that works on making the most economical car each year. Lots of events to show your school spirit. Bulldog Bash is a big event every year where the school gets several streamlined bands to come do concerts for free! The whole town gets involved.
