  • Pretty campus, terrible math department. It's essentially a do-it-yourself learning process, and when it comes to calculus, one can't traditionally teach themselves a new subject per day, then complete the 8 pages of homework assigned daily. Being in class is a participation grade at best, since the teachers don't cover what is on the homework (which accounts for 100% of your grade except for exams). And to think I wasted my money to deal with this BS...
  • Pretty campus but annoying people. This place is full of rich liberal snobs and a million foreigners (which is fine but they're like talking to a wall sometimes). There's shootings and sexual assaults here quite a bit. Not mass shootings but there are shootings. You need an indestructible lock for every part on your bike. If you like getting drunk everyday and doing nothing else this may be the place for you.
  • I love this University. I learn so much there. If it was possible, I would be professional student forever. I have meet so many people from around the world. It gave me a new appreciation for all cultures. Ever one should try to go to any college, it will open eyes to the human race. We are more a like then you might think. Education is the key to peace around the planet that we call home.
  • I had a great education. Went to the John's Hopkins for my masters and truly believe I got a better education for the money here. A true educational treasure.
  • Woah man the craziest time of my life it is one for the books! I would totally recommend the school tough academics and great people!! Sunshine for days
