The campus was amazing, the look and feel of the school was very intriguing. The student life seem very nice given the large amount of clubs and activities offered by the school.
Beautiful campus and great professors. Sometimes you feel kind of dumb compared to your peers and school is really hard but for the most part things are great here. It was pretty easy getting acclimated as a graduate student coming from another college. It is easy to get into parties if you know people in frats and the research is good.
