    Mix of student cultures at school but very campus based school; at least a third of students very focused on studies so certain competitiveness in the classroom; many campus activities and effort to involve students in activities; majority white and many students coming from a middle/upper middle class background although about a third of students receiving significant financial aid; lots of freedom from campus authorities for students to plan activities on campus

    At the time computer labs were state of the art, most students now have their own computers so labs are now for students and researchers doing specialized activities; dorms, classrooms and dining halls were a mix of older facilities and newer more updated facilities which continues as new buildings are built and older buildings remodeled.

    Thurtene Carnival and Wild Festivals were the most unique; student activities varied widely from political activities, lecture series, greek organizations, theater organizations, radio station, major based clubs, volunteer organizations; students were strongly encouraged to participate in activities as a way of applying classroom learnings and gaining experience, student led clubs were well supported by the campus authorities both financially and with other resources.
