    Chapman University

    • Orange, CA
    • 1,951 reviews
    College Junior:Overall my experience at Chapman has been pretty great. The only thing I didn't realize all that much when I visited was how much they lack diversity.

    Miami University

    • Oxford, OH

    College Junior:I have had a wonderful experience at Miami University. The professors and staff have always been helpful. I have had the wonderful opportunity of studying abroad and plan to do so again. I also belong to campus organizations and the equestrian team. The overall experience at MU has been very fulfilling. I would tell anyone to take a look at this university because there is something for everyone.

    Texas Christian University

    • Fort Worth, TX
    • 1,380 reviews
    College Senior:I did my undergrad at TCU and now an currently getting my Masters in Accounting. If I hadn't loved TCU the past four years I wouldn't still be here. It is a school that cares about grades and is competitive, but everyone also likes to have a good time. It does have a strong Greek presence on campus, but I also had friends not involved in that aspect of school. I don't regret one day I have spent at this school and the sports getting better helps as well!

    Howard University

    • Washington, DC
    • 3,387 reviews
    College Sophomore:My overall experience has been amazing! It was a difficult adjustment at first, because Howard really is a world of its own with thousands of incredibly beautiful, talented, and intelligent individuals. So it can be a lot to suddenly be entered into, but once you get involved on campus, whether it's with a state club, dance team, service organization, or party group, you automatically feel at home. Our campus is unique because I believe it has some of the most driven student bodies of America. It's a place where students have their own businesses, websites, film companies, and so much more. The school itself can be stressful, but the experience you get here is like no other place.

    University of Southern California

    • Los Angeles, CA
    • 3,309 reviews
    College Sophomore:It feels extremely personal. There are opportunities everywhere and especially as an engineer we're encouraged to mix and match the parts of USC that matter to us. For me, I work on campus doing research, I'm head of a club, I'm a student ambassador, I'm in a design club and that's my life within the school. But someone else in my major is on the varsity hocket team, in totally different clubs etc. So life here feels extremely personalized and I like that. The school also has a ridiculous amount of resources for its students, at least within engineering. There is so much energy put into the well-being of the students that it always feels like you have a strong support network.

    Fight on!

    College Sophomore:There are so many course options and major options. You can study anything that interests you at this school. All of the professors are extremely dedicated and always helpful. Class sizes are always kept small.

    James Madison University

    • Harrisonburg, VA
    • 2,587 reviews
    College Sophomore:My time at JMU has honestly changed me into a completely different person, and only for the better. While my first semester (as a second-semester sophomore transfer student) was pretty rough, it lead me to my current major, Media Arts and Design, which I love and is a field I don't think I'll ever tire of, since it changes every day! I lived on my own for the first time in my life after moving here, and got my first job the summer after my first semester. I've grown so much and become so much more confident in myself as a person since coming here.

    JMU is a place like no other. We are a community here. There are so many different ways to get involved on campus, so much to do in Harrisonburg and the surrounding valley. You meet so many different types of people here, and we all come together to make JMU what it is. My first semester I was lonely; the only person I really knew was my boyfriend, and I had such a hard time with one of my major classes that I didn't have the time or energy to get involved with anything on campus. My second semester was completely different. I applied and was accepted to a new major, loved my classes, and got involved in a service sorority and the campus newspaper. I've made so many more friends and feel like I have a support group here.

    While my first semester was rough, once I was in a better place mentally everything fell into place. I love JMU and I love being a student here. I never want to leave!

    Bucknell University

    • Lewisburg, PA
    • 694 reviews
    College Junior:Bucknell is absolutely a top tier school and deserves to be there. Unlike many top schools though, it is difficult to get into and it remains difficult throughout the years. You truly have to earn your grades in the vast majority of majors. You will learn a lot at Bucknell, and that includes learning how to fail.

    Santa Clara University

    • Santa Clara, CA
    • 1,256 reviews
    Recent Alumnus:I would choose SCU again in a heartbeat. I'm probably pretty biased though, because I was in a very small department, Classics, and as such I knew all of the professors and could wander in to the office and just spend an hour or two talking with any professor about basically anything. If I needed ideas for a paper in one class, I could wander into a random professors office, and bounce ideas off of him or her, and it was always a fun and lively conversation. These people with PHDs would happily entertain my random questions and/or argue with me for hours at a time. The quality of professors is not limited to the classics department. I had an Archaeology Professor with whom I had extensive email correspondence. While I took few theater classes, I do work in theater, and the professors in the Theater department have been valuable sources of information .

    College Sophomore:I love Vandy even though it's super hard and my first year was really tough. The classes are really challenging but the social life and the people you meet here make up for it.

    • Saint Paul, MN
    • 1,033 reviews
    College Sophomore:The University of St. Thomas is a light in my life. In all actuality, the school has such bright colored buildings and people that it makes my experience so much happier. Smiling is one of my favorite things and every day I am here, it never fails to bring a smile to my face.

    Rollins College

    • Winter Park, FL
    • 905 reviews
    College Sophomore:I love Rollins and it is a great fit. Be aware that it is a school for rich kids that have grown up with unlimited funds. The drug scene is hugeeee here, more so than any of the schools where my high school friends went. Rollins is on the druggiest schools list and this is very deserved. That's not necessarily bad, it just depends on your interests. The school is very fun; academics are easy and students have plenty of time to relax.

    Elon University

    • Elon, NC
    • 1,390 reviews
    College Sophomore:The small class size and individual attention from professors is one of the best parts; it's been really beneficial and the professors do care about you succeeding. I appreciate how the school has rush over winter instead of right away in the fall; at a school where so many students are involved in Greek life, it makes the freshman experience less stressful and divisive than if there were heavy sorority (and fraternity) influence from the very beginning. I wouldn't choose my school again only because of the cost, but I would choose it again for the lovely friends I have there and their great computer science program.

    Colgate University

    • Hamilton, NY
    • 959 reviews
    College Junior:I'd be lying if I said I 100% loved everything about Colgate. It definitely has its downsides and I felt very uncomfortable during orientation when stuck with a bunch of rich kids talking about their summers on "the vineyard." HOWEVER, I eventually got used to this, found my own group of friends, and learned to accept that there are a ton of rich, wealthy kids here-- and that most of them are very nice.


    The opportunities are amazing, and that's what I came here for. I go to classes with ton of smart, beautiful, interesting people. I learn from great professors and read challenging but thought-provoking books. I live on a beautiful campus, and even though there's not much to do in the surrounding area, that means that we're forced to appreciate each other and our time on campus :)

    I especially love the great offerings and opportunity to make friends within the hundreds of clubs, organizations, club sports, intramural sports, and a capella groups on campus. (Join something! Right away! Don't hesitate!) There are so many great opportunities through these clubs for fun outings (like Ski Club!) and interesting lectures (like International Relations Council!).

    I also think Colgate is the perfect size. I'm always meeting new, interesting people, but I see friends everywhere I go!

    Career Services is really helpful, and this is great considering a lot of people worry that going to a liberal arts school makes it harder to get hired. I really recommend the SophoMORE Connections event available sophomore year. It's a great way to practice networking, meet alumni, and learn about different career options. Students who are interested in an unpaid summer internship also apply for grant money-- about half of people who apply receive it and you can get over $4,000 if you need it!

    The Study Abroad offerings are amazing too! --and students on financial aid get extra grant money for that semester to help them out! (Thank god!)

    We're #1

    Southern Methodist University

    • Dallas, TX
    • 1,349 reviews
    Recent Alumnus:I am a recent alumnus so I will be a bit biased but I will also as objective as possible with my review...

    First things first, I would honestly give this school a 4.5, or a 9/10... not a 10. Mostly for this upcoming reason.


    This school is CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY expensive lol. Was my degree worth it, the alumni network, prestige, job opportunities, etc? YES.. But SMU is still WAYYYY TOO expensive. This is the most expensive school in Texas and by a GOOD MARGIN actually lol(I believe it's around 8-10k more than TCU, 2nd most expensive lol). Thus, the "MRS" thing at SMU is fairly accurate lol.


    Where to begin...

    My whole family went to either UT or Rice, so I had pressure growing up to attend those schools. I chose SMU easily and (despite the CRAZY tuition) I would do it ALL OVER AGAIN.

    When you go to college you want to gain a few things:

    1. Life experience

    2. A solid education

    3. Friends/opportunities to last a lifetime

    4. Strong alumni network (SMU has a VERY STRONG one!)

    5. Degree weight/worth/value

    6. Opportunity

    7. A GOOD job

    You will get ALL OF THOSE at SMU. Upon graduation I had no trouble getting job offers, particularly in Dallas and ALL THROUGHOUT Texas. The other 2 major cities that come to mind: Houston and Austin, I had DOZENS of offers and meetings from those areas lol. It just came down to where I wanted to live in the end, honestly lol. They were ALL good jobs! The "recognition/prestige' of being SMU alumni is almost UNMATCHED in Texas. If you plan to stay in Texas after graduation, you will be JUST FINE(trust me) lol.

    The friends i've met, made, and kept from my days from all background SES, racial(SMU is more diverse than you think), Greek or NON Greek, I have and will keep for a lifetime. I also PERSONALLY know 2 people who got into Harvard Law and 1 to Harvard Med from SMU undergrad.

    SMU pushes you to bring the best OUT OF YOU, work hard, do right, do well, carry/present yourself well and Pony Up!

    College Sophomore:Attending Mount Holyoke College is one of the best decision I could have made. The people here are intelligent and welcoming and passionate. The professors are knowledgeable and personable. Coming from the West Coast, I was unable to go home for Thanksgiving but I received many invitations from my professors to join them at their respective tables. The classes and challenging and interesting without being overwhelming. The energy here is inspiring and empowering and there is no where else I would rather spend these four years of my life

    Stephen F Austin State University

    • 2,323 reviews
    College Student:This was my dream school since 8th grade. Though it has its downfalls & uphills, it is great campus with great people and professors who are there to help you learn. Don't get bogged down with all the negative and choose to look at the positives about what you want to do in life and how going here will get you there. I wouldn't have picked anywhere else to go to get my degree(s), I have fallen in love with the staff, location, and opportunities.

    College Junior:UGA is a really nice school and the city of the Athens is the best. There are so many people your age around you, so it's really fun and since it's a big school, there's literally something for everyone. There's even a furry's club and a medieval sword fighting club. That's how diverse the school is!
