    Miami University

    • 2,815 reviews
    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.

    College Sophomore:I feel like my school has even more to offer than I thought it did and while there are definitely issues, I can't imagine myself being anywhere else.

    Middlebury College

    • Middlebury, VT
    • 463 reviews
    College Sophomore:Professors here are great, I have had very few professors that I did not like. Most are extremely engaging and very invested in their students' learning. Registration can be stressful, especially freshman year, but it typically works itself out during the add/drop period. Workload at times can be overwhelming, but not more than to be expected from any top college. Lots of great study spaces around campus with a variety of atmospheres.

    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

    Wake Forest University

    • Winston Salem, NC
    • 723 reviews
    College Sophomore:I absolutely love Wake Forest! I am so happy that I decided to go to Wake. Not only does it feel like home but it has truly become my home. The people I have met are incredible people and I have so many great memories from my first year of college.

    University of Southern California

    • Los Angeles, CA
    • 3,310 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!

    United States Naval Academy

    • Annapolis, MD
    • 185 reviews
    College Sophomore:The school is different, but what makes it truly amazing is its ability to make you push yourself. Once you come here, you realize you can work harder than you thought, are stronger than you knew, and smarter than you believed. You will go through a rough freshman year, but the rewards sophomore year and on are completely worth it. You will make lifelong friends, and be proud of yourself for going to the Naval Academy.

    Bates College

    • Lewiston, ME
    • 318 reviews
    College Freshman:I love going to class at Bates. Coming from a highly challenging high school, the classes (I was in all arts/English/humanities my first semester) the workload was sometimes difficult but overall extremely manageable. I adored every one of my teachers and felt like I got a lot of personal attention from each one of them.

    I have a lot of friends that are neuroscience majors, however, and that path of study is much more challenging.

    Pros of curriculum: study abroad highly encouraged, almost everyone does it. Also everyone gets to do a senior thesis (alas, some hate this and some love it).

    Cons of curriculum: can be an education minor and get your teaching certificate, but only for grades 6-12- no early ed. Certification!

    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.

    College Sophomore:I absolutely love UCSB. I know I'm a little biased but I think the atmosphere is amazing and the people there are incredibly easy-going. The beach is ridiculously close and I met my boyfriend here :)

    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 .

    University of St. Thomas - Minnesota

    • 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.

    Claremont McKenna College

    • Claremont, CA
    • 402 reviews
    College Sophomore:People call it Camp Claremont because it literally is like a camp. You will have the best time of your life here. You get the state school party scene (seriously, we love to party :D) with the prestige and academics of one of the best liberal arts schools in the nation.

    • Charlottesville, VA
    • 2,003 reviews
    College Sophomore:I absolutely adore my school. There is not a day that goes by that I don't walk to class, finding new reasons to be grateful for choosing it. The combination of history, academics, athletics, social scene and opportunities is one that cannot be compared.

    Chapman University

    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.

    College Sophomore:Almost all of my professors have been great. Although I wish I would take more advantage of office hours, nearly all of my professors have been very approachable, knowledgable, and interested in helping me learn. Especially in my labs, it has been easy for me to get one-on-one help with projects or answers to quick questions. I have even worked with the head of my department, and feel comfortable talking to him and almost any other staff member of the department.

    Florida State University

    • Tallahassee, FL
    • 6,510 reviews
    College Freshman:Florida State is a great school. The academics are great; the football team is great; the students are great. I really like that FSU offers Freshman Interest Groups and Success Coaches. There are so many great programs for students to take advantage of here. Everyone's looking out for us and working to contribute to our success.

    University of San Diego

    • San Diego, CA
    • 1,703 reviews
    Recent Alumnus:I loved attending USD. The campus is hard to beat, you literally feel like you're on a four year vacation at a country club. And it's definitely easy to feel like you're on spring break year round, too. The food is probably the best on a college campus. The dorms are huge. Off campus housing at the beach is even better. There are so many things to get involved with and the amount of options for studying abroad are UNREAL. The professors are all extremely nice and helpful, with small classes you really get that 1-1 attention. All of my professors know their students by name and are always accessible to their students. I'd say the school is a bit competitive, the student body is very ambitious and everyone is always doing something big. Although it is a Catholic school, it's super liberal and focuses more on social justice issues. Everyone, for the most part, is extremely open-minded. Take advantage of everything, you'll have the best four years here.

    Stephen F Austin State University

    • Nacogdoches, TX
    • 2,325 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 of the Holy Cross

    • Worcester, MA
    • 469 reviews
    College Freshman:The workload is ridiculous. You will be assigned a ton of work and all of it is hard. It is imperative that you stay on top of your work and don't think that you can get a good grade without studying...Professors here challenge you greatly. You will definitely feel smarter after taking any course.

    Rollins College

    • Winter Park, FL
    • 906 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.

    • Villanova, PA
    • 1,365 reviews
    College Junior:Villanova has been an incredible experience. It was remarkably easy to find a group of genuine, smart, fun friends who respect and care for each other. Students and teachers are passionate about learning, growing, and challenging mindsets that are rarely challenged. In addition I have the opportunity to make a documentary film and to intern at The Vatican through my school.
