    The campus is really nice. There is almost always something going on in the Quad. Movies often play at the ATS building, which is nice to attend after a long day of classes. The students here are outgoing, which makes being away from home a little easier. There are places to grab breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack within the quad. The faculty and staff are also very outgoing and are willing to help you whenever you need it.

    I have had a great experience here at The Rock. It is in a small little town and they hold a lot of activities for students, any where from concerts featuring any one from Drake to Chris Young, to The Kaleidoscope Festival and free weekend movies, that are recent movies from the theater, before they are released on DVD. You also get to meet many more students. I have met one of my very best friends up here my freshman year and she introduced me to my future husband.

    I love the campus life. There are many activities to do from a sporting event to intermural sports at the ARC to all the performing art shows that are on campus and free to get into. I really enjoy participating in everything that Slippery Rock Univeristy has to offer. They let you learn who you are and enjoy being independent.

    I like the quiet, but Slippery Rock offers things for anyone. There's a gym, plenty of places to eat, a good deal of campus events, and shopping nearby in Grove City.
