"Most professors are some of the best people I've ever met, let alone the best educators," says one student. They "do a great job sharing their enthusiasm with their students" and provide lots of opportunities such as internships, volunteer events, and research opportunities that students "would not be able to get if [they] did not have such involved and motivated teachers." "If you are late to class or not coming to class your professors will 100 percent be texting you to make sure everything is okay and to help you out if you need anything," says a student. Experiential learning goes along with class discussions and lectures, and with smaller class sizes, "it is easier for professors to slow down and focus on specific areas and students."
On campus, the main dining hall is a popular spot at night ("steak AND shrimp every Saturday!!"), and with over eighty clubs and activities, such as "Winter Wonderland, Southern Takeover (a big concert), comedy shows, [and] service events," means "there is never a dull moment." "There are so many different ways to get involved on campus and it's so easy to do," confirms a student. Greek life is "a very big experience" here, and its members "tend to participate in intramurals, community service, and fundraisers."
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
