Overall Rating:

A wonderful place. I spent two years studying here, it was a bliss and a boon. Got a great liberal education, made me a better person, taught me how to be a critical thinker, and challenged me. For me, there was not much to be done outside of class, but I know there is always a way to doing whatever you like. They have intramural sports, a newspaper, chess clubs, and other extracurricular activities, and one can always found their own. Such a great place, I loved my time here.
