Great professors, good class sizes. Really nice people. It definitely has a vibe, but if you're artsy and creative I would absolutely recommend it!

The people I have met here have been AMAZING. I have found nothing but open arms here on campus and I know I have made friends for life. My favorite part of being here so far is doing crazy wild things with these new people in my life like walking a mile to a diner at 2 am and putting salt in each others water. Whenever I am feeling stressed about classes or financial aid, these are the people that are going to keep me from falling down the rabbit hole.

Vassar is not without flaws (administration issues, subpar dining services, lack of diversity of thought, etc.), but has served as a second home for me. Academics and student life are phenomenal.
