    The campus is cozy, quiet, and in a great location at the foot of a mountain. The students, faculty, and staff are, in my experience, almost universally friendly and reasonable, intelligent people. Santa Fe itself is a beautiful, eclectic little city, with an extensive arts scene and activities for almost every type of person (though I speak as a devoted native :D ). It is NOT, however, your typical college town. Nightlife is generally nonexistent, or expensive beyond the means of college students. The campus social scene itself seems very nice -- though my experience in that field is limited thus far. Students I've talked to say that most people can find their niche, and end up with a group of close friends. (Roommate selection is excellently done from what I hear.) However, the report is that the campus can be a bit insular at times, so an occasional escape into town or beyond is useful for maintaining a sane balance.

    I mostly love being here; sometimes of course the campus can be overwhelming because of its size and the lack of nightlife in Santa Fe; but overall, it's not very difficult to get off campus. The bus is like 2 or 3 bucks for a round-trip into town and back. You can also buy monthly or yearly or poly-monthly passes. And as far as the lack of nightlife goes, the campus itself has its own sort of nightlife, since we are indeed one of the few places of concentration of young people here. Santa Fe is beautiful though; especially the sky is. Every night the sunset is just as enchanting and captivating, yet totally unique of the previous and the following day. Not to mention the air up here I think feels pretty comparatively clean from most other places. And mountain hiking is quite fun.

    Priding itself on community involvement and communication, there are a lot of cons, namely an inflated ego as a result of esoteric readings. Sports and a lot of other extracurricular activities are not offered here, though the option to create a student group is encouraged (though funding may not always be available).

    It is pretty far from where I live, I don't know how I will adjust to how far away from home it is, but the people there are really nice, and calm about everything that goes on. I think that I will soon learn to live comfortably there.
