4 College Senior

Majors: At first I thought it was just a bunch of hoops to jump through, but now I see why it was so strict. Very challenging but very educational. I'll feel confident in my abilities when I leave.

5 College Senior

Nightlife: In the middle of the biggest city in the state, and a cultural center of the nation. Yeah, you'll never have enough time for it all.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: century old buildings that would be condemned if not owned by the university, or, private for-profit corporations that regularly violate laws regarding living areas.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The university operates with general courses and "college of..." courses. (business, art, engineering, health, urban studies) These colleges are entire built around the curriculum they are trying to teach, and are usually of excellent quality. The exception arises when a professor from one college is asked to teach to a different field, and the quality is basically erased. The general courses are hit and miss though.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I can't go a day without hearing the word "internship". So many for such a variety of places and fields that it's almost annoying.
