I feel like my university could've done a lot better in this. I didn't feel that prepared for the real world upon graduation. However, there was one particular class that I felt was beneficial. We developed resumes and cover letters and did mock interviews and such.

Being a smaller school I felt like the students/culture there was pretty close and quite welcoming. The campus community was quite diverse.

They are constantly upgrading older buildings and adding more resources for students.

The facilities were quite nice. The campus is growing and the newer buildings have some really nice features. The new gym is awesome! All new equipment. The library is three stories and is very nice, it could stand to have more "quiet" spaces and more rooms for students to hold group study sessions or to have thier own space to study and do homeork. However, the whole top floor is deemed a "quiet" floor, so talking isn't allowed and people respect that rule for the most part. Depending on the buildings the classrooms are decent, the older buildings could defintiely use some upgrades... but again, they're expanding the campus and in years to come i'm sure this will be improved upon.

Several years ago the rugby team was very good and won a national title. The members of that club however, were not good representations of the university as a whole.

This particular campus is very accepting. I noticed in my time there they hosted a lot of PRIDE activities for the LGBT community and other supporters. The host an annual drag fashion show. They also are very involved in hosting foreign exchange students and have alot of cultural events hosted on campus.
