WHAT I LIKED

I like that it's a big school and there's something for everybody. they even have an archery club and I think that's pretty cool. There's also a good amount of resources to get help from.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The frat/sorority life here is robust and annoying. They fill the downtown campus like fleas every night.
