The best way would be to break this up:AverageGeography and Geosciences
The best way would be to break this up:

Faculty - bright and interesting, but a bit into themselves. With the exception of my dept, other science professors seemed to enjoy torturing, under the guise of "challenging". There are way too many TA's who cannot speak English clearly.

Students - Are either: 1) only willing to hang out with their own ethnic/religious group or fellow high school alumni or 2) unmotivated, ignorant and lazy. Overall, the student body is very shallow and "fake friendly"

Transportation - buy a decal. It's not cheap, but you have the choice of digging deeper into your pockets or go around in circles for 30 minutes in the area.

Facilities - not good. Not enough computers available + selfish students who hog the stations to browse on facebook = bring your laptop to campus. Science labs outdated and filthy.Social Life - none. Even though I personally don't care about those things, if you're looking for booze, it won't happen here.

This was a great school I personally enjoyed
This was a great school I personally enjoyed it. However if you are the type that wants a college life ex: drinking/partying, this isn't for you. Those that actually want to succeed in life and are disciplined will love this school. As far as education goes, you DO get a good quality education. I learned a lot from this school, but it is not perfect. As all schools, you have some great professors and and you have some awful ones. I amazes me to see that this school is known for its Psychology major but 8/10 of the professors I had in the dept were awful. It made me change my major in psychology to a minor! But that is only one dept of many, for the most part the school is great!

This is an Excellent College.BrightPsychology
This is an Excellent College. The academic programming is challenging yet enjoyable. You can't beat the price and the grounds are beautiful.

The resources available are amazing. There are newly renovated computer rooms with state of the art computers. There is free laptop lending program.

There is a tree lined quad with grass and trees that is a beautiful place to just sit and study.
The social life is great, but i don't mean alcohol drinkers. (I don't know why people associate social life with drinking)

There are over 100 clubs that appeal to so many interests that there is something enriching and fun almost every day and awesome people you can just talk to.This is such an amazing college, its 8th in the US and its such a great price.
