Alumnus - Grad Year 2001

College Life Rating

The diversity of the student body is a curse and a blessing. As a student you will be exposed to individuals from all corners of the country and the world. Those students will expose you to cultures and ideas that put your culture and beliefs in context. That diversity can also lead to student body segmentation. Let's face it, people like to associate with like-minded people.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1992

College Life Rating

I had fun on an outing or two with the orienteering club. Rowing is, of course, top-notch. Football is not. The fraternities were required to let anyone attend their parties, which was nice. If you like that sort of thing.
