The scenery is second-to-none. The big university style is felt in some classes, it is definatly important to get to know the professors, that is something with which I struggled and it made it harder to succeed. It is great how they try to implement major courses in a schedule right away, and the advisors help first semester freshman get involved. It is certainly a community feel around campus and in the town. It isn't really a rowdy atmosphere, it is very calm and a very good place for studying. I noticed many people have athletic-like majors, and their sports teams aren't great, but the atmosphere is improving. Overall, it is a home away from home, pretty quiet, but really focused on academics, be sure to not fall behind early. The professors are really knowledgeable, have good relations with the surrounding environment, and display good preparation for jobs.
