I love it, its perfect the way it is. It's small yet it has everything you would expect out of a large ivy college. The best part being that it really is a LIBERAL arts college

It's a great school when it comes to resources, opportunities and fitting in. The social scene of more or less standard. A couple parties every other weekend which you get used to. Something or the other to do with friends. Professors are really helpful. You will get into most classes you want to take.
