The University is a fantastic place for those who are desiring a rigorous college experience. But it's not all just rigor. There are countless opportunities to join clubs, activities or other groups that will get you connected with like-minded people. It is a relatively small school, which offers each student a greater chance to get connected with their peers and professors and create an academic environment specific to them. While I am still enrolled at the school, I have learned an incredible amount inside and outside of the classroom. There is a wide cultural diversity which has presented me with opportunities to step out of my comfort zone and make new friends and learn about new places, religions, and cultures. They make studying abroad easy, which is important to many students. I do wish that there was a bit more of a variety of classes offered in the Art department. There are a good amount of solid classes, but a wider choice would be welcome.

Pros:

-VERY knowledgeable

-Willing and able to answer difficult questions

-Pushes for including students in undergraduate research

-Grades fairly

-Covers all material in depth

Cons:

-Course moves near the speed of light

-Doctors are not good at explaining the basics of what they know

-Occasionally get distracted by their research and fall behind (but they always catch up)

Overall, the professors at this university are very good once you get past the learning curve of their high level technical jargon. They will help you understand outside of class and teach very well (if a bit encrypted) in class. You have to be very intelligent to pass your classes, but if you do, you learn more than you would almost anywhere else.

Greeks and non Greeks treat each other the same. There are tons of opportunities to get involved on campus and they are all seen as equally important. We don't shame people for their letters or legacies. We have a lot of different sororities and fraternities that have plenty of housing if you decide to join. It's clean, fun, and worth it(if you're into that kind of thing)!
