The biggest problem with the school is that it's too expensive. For the most part, students come from rich families so they can be snobby to a country girl like me. Overall, I am there for my academics and that is where my college shines. The professors are excellent and so are their teaching efforts.

There are so many opportunities you can't be bored.

It's pretty hellacious here. Mostly because of the lack of gluten free options for celiacs like me and the horrendous coaching staff for track and cross country that drove me to quit the teams.
