If you find that you really enjoy a specific professor, they want you to go to office hours and get to know them - it will pay off, and having a staff member that write great recommendations for you will give you an edge for internships. It's a very academic school, but there's still a large greek life and a great basketball team. read full review

Many freshman find themselves in triples, and due to limited housing, juniors and seniors are having a harder time getting into campus housing. The food here is ok, though there are only two different options for places to use your meal swipes on campus. read full review
