WHAT I LIKED

Vassar pushed me to grow in ways that I don't think another college or university would have allowed me to. Its small class sizes and intimate learning settings challenged me to not only learn from the brilliant professors but from my peers who asked thought-provoking questions and challenged norms.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is a place for deep thinkers and for people who appreciate individualism and being in a space that honors everyone where they are and for who they are.

WHAT I LIKED

It has a beautiful campus and a lot of programs and events are accessible to all students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Too expensive, doesn't have a lot of engineering programs, and professors are not the best.

WHAT I LIKED

I like the cleanliness and the friendly atmosphere on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think the academic portion, especially with deciding on majors in the social sciences, can be difficult if you're not sure what you want to do.
