The housing was so clean and close to being brand new! I loved it. There was such a sense of university pride and community pride that I hadn't seen anywhere. The RA's were so incredibly nice that I couldn't believe they were students! I also loved how close they were to my classes. I could wake up about 30 mins before classes and get to my classes on time, with a cup of coffee. On the weekends we had movie nights and plays that each floor would set up. I think I met some of my best college friends through this.

One thing I really love about my school is the campus. It is very beautiful and relaxing. I actually enjoy spending my free time up there. I can study, reach zen or even get a good workout running throughout campus. The teachers have all been incredibly knowledgeable and happy to teach. Good teachers + comfortable environment = success!
I like that a number of degrees are offered at this University, and the professors are great. I do not like that tasks such as changing your major, address, getting holds taken off, getting a parking sticker, etc. Take a long time and multiple trips to different offices. Also depending on your major you can have 3 different advisors. There is no reason to have multiple advisors because they can give you conflicting information. Also the parking is horrible, even at 8 a.m. unless you get to school very early. I would build more parking lots. The campus is beautiful but I feel that money is spent on aesthetics rather than equipment for students. For example, the pH readers in the biology lab do not work, the Mettler balances in the chemistry lab are outdated and are innacurate. I would keep the equipment in the labs especially more up to date. There is an alumni house being built and it will look beautiful, but I would rather know that my numbers for my lab experiments are accurate.
