    Their housing system is unique and one of my personal favorites. They just sound like so much fun to live in, and a sense of family, community, and coziness is important to me.

    In every way I'm enjoying being here. The support system for freshmen is pretty great; they take care of you and make sure you're eased in, there is always something going on around campus, and there is such a vast variety of people that basically anyone can find a niche.

No party school by any stretch, but definitely a fun place.
