WHAT I LIKED

It is a very competitive school so I haven't found a great work-life balance here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The chemistry courses here are accelerated compared to typical state schools. For example, my general chemistry 1 class was composed of the material my brother and friends at a state school learned in gen chem 1 and gen chem 2.

WHAT I LIKED

The community is the best part. There are some seriously amazing students, professors, advisors, and alumni at this school. Everyone is always willing to support you and it's very easy to get involved in anything you are interested in.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

To be honest, I do not like some of the student attitudes on campus. There is racism and sexism at this university, which I am sure can be said for all universities. I have been fortunate enough to find a friend group away from all this, but I still experience it as a woman of color. Just be aware that you are entering a predominantly white institution, and some white men have very traditionalist views. However, overall there are some really great people and the bad ones don't take over your entire experience.

WHAT I LIKED

I love the community. Everyone is so kind and helpful. Professors want you to do well and are willing to be there for you no matter what. Mental health is important at the university as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the dorms are pretty gross and there is a big culture of drinking that permeates everyday life pretty much.
