Washington University in St. Louis Reviews
Campus and the people are a nice oasis. St Louis is really run down and there are many sketchy areas. There are times I regret moving to the south and it is a cultural shock that you can't avoid. There are a lot of schools with academic excellence but you also should consider the politics and socio-economics of the region.
Excellent academics. Top notch professors. Campus can be boring if you aren't Greek, honestly wish they would abolish the system. The campus food gets old and there aren't a lot of extra curricular choices.
There are many academic resources available to students. Professors are great for getting in touch with others for research opportunities.
