    As a CE student, there's not much collegiate life to be had. You get in, you get out. JWU rarely fosters their CE community as much as they do their Day division.

    For the most part the school is decent. The only thing to do on weekends is to go clubbing but since I don't club, that leaves me with nothing to do.

    Honestly I love it here. Everyone is so friendly and yes I do get homesick sometimes but i get over it when I am hanging out with people. The dorms are very nice especially the upperclassmen ones because they are like an apartment style (good thing to look forward to) but they can be pricey. The food on campus isn't always that great but there are alot of places around the campus to eat at. Also you use your ID card to swipe for food. You get 15 swipes a week and 5 guess swipes a trimester so use it wisely. There's also a Starbucks on both the Harborside and Downcity Campus. There are many of different clubs, organizations, and sports to do so i recommend getting involved in something because you meet alot of new people that way.

    After going to orientation and staying there, I honestly feel the JWU is the right fit. There are so many things to do so there is no way that you can have boredom.
