Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Kaytlyn from Gallipolis, OH
  • I am a past student here

    I have lived in Gallipolis my entire lifetime so URG has always been close. It was nice to not have to live on campus but staying home isn't ideal to many college students. I did get accepted into the Honors Dorms at URG but I'd rather stay at my nicer and cleaner home.

  • I am a current student here

    I do not live on campus, as I live at home. But, it is close to family. they often have many sporting events/ student community events to attend. Yes, it is a small town, but this is better for those of us who enjoy the country. Also, its a lot more quiet, and therefore you can study more easily.
