This school has a beautiful campus, motivated vibe and amazing student population! I recommend this school for pre-med and those that would like to be in an environment where many of their peers are striving for the same goal. The environment is very friendly and the people are inventive and genius.

I live in AMR III B, and I honestly love it. I have a triple room, and my suite-mate has a single; the four of us share 1 bathroom with a little hallway connecting our 2 rooms. I was lucky enough to get randomly assigned awesome roommates, but other people have had some roommate problems. It can honestly go either way. The housing process is very simple, and people mostly get what dorms they want, except for the people in Hopkins Inn (no one wants Hop Inn). If you want a triple, you're basically guaranteed it.

All of the dorms are pretty great! AMR 1 & 2 don't have air conditioning, though, so a lot of them spent their summer days in Wolman or AMR III for the coolness. The III's are great because we're right above the FFC!

Hop Cops are always riding around at night; you see the green flashing lights, and you know someone's looking out for you. The security guards are all really sweet. Take the time to talk to them and get to know them - they're awesome!

Security is fine. You can sign up for the security alerts that usually have nothing to do with safety on campus, just crimes that happen several streets away. They don't really report on things that happen directly on campus, but it's nice to stay informed about the city, I guess.
