Categories Comments Campus Safety
Its a high guy ratio campus, but generally girls feel pretty safe. All girls dorms are above first level. You may also think that with the amount of hunters there would be a gun issue, but there are no rifle weapons allowed in dorms rooms, they're kept in the campus gun safe. You have a lock to your apartment, and a lock to your personal room.
Clubs and Activities
Dozens of clubs and opportunities for just about any degree, any sport, any hobby. It's also very easy to create your own club here too!
Great for these types of students
People who love the outdoors; fishing, hiking, camping, hunting, you name it, it's here!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The majority of the people here are coming with a hunting/farm/small town background, but there are plenty of people here from the suburbs and cities to. So imagine normal college life with a red neck twist.
Bang for the buck
Its very reasonable and affordable.
What to do for fun
When the weathers nice, swimming, hiking, four-wheeling,biking, hunting, boating, just having fun on the water. The BWCA is just a quick drive down the road, and the school provides renting equipment. In the winter there is ice fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, skiing, dogsledding, and just about anytihng you can think of that has to do with winter.
Food and Dining
Be prepared for A LOT of greasy, cafeteria food. However, you are provided with your own kitchen, so you have the ability to cook your own meals.
Depending on where you stay, the rooming options are pretty spacious and there are plenty of areas in your room, and around campus to store recreation equipment.
You have the ability to have a close relationship with your teacher here, so its not hard to keep up on school work, and its easy to ask for help.
Tips for prospective students
You are living in a small town environment, and its a small campus. You're going to be seeing the same people every day, so do your best to avoid stressful and uncomfortable situations, and respect students, staff, and the local citizens.
