  • Beautiful campus with well planned out colorful trees (during fall). City center has good variety of restaurants. Good visit !
  • Ranked the No 1 national university in the United States for nine years in between 2001-16. The living space of scholars, producing geniuses across all sectors. It is definitely a dream university to be in. A real hub for talents. We spent the whole day to visit in and around the University.
  • Architecture is lovely. Their art museum has one of the most interesting and diverse collections for a museum of its size (including some Chinese terra cotta miniature figures which I believe they are the only ones in the country to have examples of) and a nice collection of antiquities (it helps to have an archeology program).
  • The dragons attacked. nobody would help and the dog attack on the commons really shook me up. also, I died, but only after fixing my dumb roommates clogged toilet. totally recommend.
  • Decent, no-frills education at reasonable prices designed to fit any budget.
