Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    Belhaven has a great campus life that is easy and fun to get involved with. Currently I am a resident assistant. This position is a payed position that allows students with leadership qualities to apply and be selected for position of authority in the residence halls. The RA's are chosen for their ability to lead and establish community on their hall. I am also the vice president of sigma zeta. This is an organization nationwide that awards distinction to science and math majors who want to be a part of the society. This is part of our biology club which is small, but can be very enjoyable and valuable for finding carrier paths, internships and more. I am also the president of student missions fellowship (SMF). This is an on-campus ministry that focuses mainly on missions as well as fellowship, worship and prayer. There are other great on-campus ministries such as reformed university fellowship (RUF) which is more like a wednesday night church service, and an athletic fellowship group called FCA. Belhaven activities teams always have something going on also, but the real enjoyment of the campus is found in the close atmosphere of both the student and the professors. You would find it difficult to not make friends at Belhaven. Unfortunately I cannot give a perfect score for this section either because the male facilities are not well maintained. There is a definite retention problem due to factors such as the unreliable internet and the lack of maintenance in male facilities. The fact is that the football team makes up a large portion of the men living on campus and these individuals tend to be poor stewards of the facilities. This in turn leads to an assumption that the male residence halls should not be furnished with new lobby furniture, simple necessities such as access to a decent vacuums cleaner, broom, or other useful tools. The poor condition of the male residence halls has had an affect on my enjoyment of Belhaven University. Some improvement have been made to this condition.
