Student Sound Offs
"There are only a handful of classes with over one hundred students, and those are generally first year courses. A lot of classes have between 10 and 20 people."
"It's a very small campus, so everyone seems to know everyone else. We're a tight-knit little community that's very friendly. Everyone holds the doors open for everyone else."
"Many new buildings are coming soon, and that's very exciting."
"Many of my professors are well-respected and published in their fields. Professors have first-hand knowledge of many topics, and have extensive contacts which improve access to new information."
"Our university has numerous clinics that help students learn about taking notes, writing exams and even papers. The student services are very well done."
"Though there have been upgrades to the security for student residences, it still feels unsafe especially late in the evenings and weekends."
"It is a mixed bag of apathy and right-wing conservative beliefs. It can be an uncomfortable environment for minority groups, students of different ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientation."
"As for medical services, we only have a public health nurse who visits once a month, and we don't have insurance or other programs."
"Many students come from small Manitoba communities, and these students then form cliques based on the towns that they come from."
"Brandon is great for aboriginal students and has many clubs and programs that they can be a part of."
