1 College Junior

Scholarships: It's really difficult being middle class, white, with married parents at this school. Even as a first generation college student, you get very little and it takes forever to get it right

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Most people would say it's a rough area, but it isn't that bad. There's little public transportation and the shopping is only okay

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Guys rate girls on a specific 1-10 scale that is two points lower than real life. It's called the "Augie Scale." For example, if a girl is a 6 at Augie, she's a 4 anywhere else. Personally, i think guys should have the same scale there. Many of the people who attend school at Augie are wealthy kids from the suburbs of Chicago. They have an attitude about them that says they'll go far in life because they have Mom and Dad's money to pay for school and can party all they want because of this. Relationships are immature because guys don't want to be tied down and each sex has fidelity issues. Many girls stay with their boyfriends from home throughout college while guys stay single, rarely dating.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Every ince inawhile there's a professor that you can't stand, but for the most part all professors are very approachable and willing to help. Class sizes can be huge at the entry level, but decline in size as the difficulty increases or as a major is less popular

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: You run into alumni in places you least expect it and they're always willing to help a fellow viking because they were once in your shoes. Networking with alumni is the best possible thing a student could do to get their foot in the door for their career.
