My favorite experiences are at school events that take place at "classic" school places such as the Quad and The Docks. My school is unique because it is very liberal, so every student's voice has an opportunity to be heard, and issues can be addressed. If I had the chance to do it all over I would not choose this school only because academically it is too liberal for my taste. I came in to college knowing exactly what I wanted to do, and the liberal system is set up so that you can experience a little bit of everything, which is not bad per se, but it can be considered a waste of time for those who know what they want. So it's really a personal preference.
