College Life Rating

I believe the size of the student and location of school will play a perfect part on social atmosphere. Just can not wait to run by the Lake Michigan and be able to see the skyline of the downtown Chicago I know it will be very cold but I will enjoy the great fall and maybe hibernate in the winter.
