WHAT I LIKED

The University has more than 35,000 undergraduate students which makes it incredibly easy to meet new people and find new interests. However, it can also be easy to be overwhelmed by both the number of people and the intelligence of those on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As a PWI, I knew what I was getting myself into. However, it's still frustrating to see students struggle to understand experiences and backgrounds that don't align with their own.

WHAT I LIKED

It may take some time but you will find your community. If you are social there are many spaces where you can be out and about with others. Courses can be tough but for my degree, there were many professors that were willing to help and be supportive of my endeavors during and after my time there!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There can be a large number of people who don't and refuse to acknowledge their privilege, specifically on the student side in my experience. It can become exhausting to see people in the class have horrible mindsets about the identities you hold and having to keep your composure. There is also a hierarchy in what you study if you have an internship, and what classes you're taking that can be very detrimental to the experience which is why finding your community is crucial.

WHAT I LIKED

I like the prestige of the school as well as the mindset of many of the students. The students here are all very determined to do well in classes while also thriving socially which is a nice balance.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The social life here can be hard to get into if you do not party and the academics are very challenging. Some of the grading systems here are also unfair.

WHAT I LIKED

It provides numerous opportunities and there truly is something for everyone. There are resources to support you in your journey throughout college. There are also great alumni resources once you graduate as well, including free online learning programs.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's a big school. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle, so it's on you to stay focused (and not skip class!).
