Our school is trulyBrightPhilosophy
Our school is truly an excellent place for students to become the adults they want to be, and to study whatever tickles their can even create your own major.

I was undecided between Vassar, Wesleyan, Tufts andBrightBiology
I was undecided between Vassar, Wesleyan, Tufts and Hamilton. I love my sports and academics. I was very nervous about Vassar, because of some weird reviews, but in the end it was the best place I could be at; to figure out what I wanted to do, I have really enjoyed meeting new people from all over the country and world!Vassar is not a cookie cutter frat University. I really feel like it opened the door from my small town in CT, where everyone seemed to be the same. There is always something to do, and sometimes too much to choose from. I feel I have had, research opportunities I would have never had at other colleges even at the Ivy leagues. I like the pass/fail classes, they give you a chance to try classes you would never try, it lets you go outside the box. I met great friends, probably for the rest of my life. I feel like I will be extremely prepared for grad school. I am an athlete and adore my coaches and teammates and their support of my academics, which I never felt when I was looking at D1 schools. But college is what you make it, and you need to be open and aware. I made an effort to befriend people I never would in high school. I am much less rigid than I was in High School About the those strange people I was afraid of, there turned out to be a few, but always interesting!

Vassar is a great place to discover whatQuite BrightPhysics
Vassar is a great place to discover what you want to do in life. The school makes it safe to explore classes out side of your comfort zone. Some classes outside of your major you can take P/F like Brown. My social life is well balanced (There is alway something going on, sometimes too much) with academic studies. I get a kick out of the creative, funny and talented folks I am surround by ;even though I am more of a patron than an artist! Vassar has many research and internship opportunities that you might not have at other undergraduate programs.
