The grades is personal and unfair.
If one dislike you he can ask the rest to change your grades.
The evaluation of the classes will be taken by the same instructor and if he see that you gave him less than 10/10 in anything that is mean your grade will be bad.
A lot of the student are working with the same instructions and if you are not working with them you will be in danger.
A lot of the courses will not give you your scores during the semester and you will not know anything until the class finished.
A lot of the professors are not replaying to emails.
If you are not from the same area they will feel bad if you answer any questions or you were active in the discussions mainly when their student are week.

First of all it is a great liberal town , scenic and one of the more interesting University towns in the US. There is abundance of opportunities on campus which anyone can take advantage of, but many are not aware or are not forthcoming enough. I have had great oppurtunities of leaderships on this campus.This is a huge university, so many students complain of getting lost,but I have always enjoyed the largeness and I believe in any classroom I have been including one's with 100 students, teachers have been willing to help. Actually I find that undergraduates are often afraid to speak up.
I have faced hurdles in getting involved with student activities/student bodies on campus, so even though the diversity is paraded, it is not often practised.
Both American and International students do no go out of their comfort zones namely the "cliques" to establish camaraderie in the class rooms.
Graduate advisors often assume a totalitarian attitude when it comes to the students, graduate students are very much powerless when it comes to any kind of research/course/thesis problems.Overall the importance is given to research rather than teaching. The great goal of teaching is to nurture the yound students in to responsible and curious citizens, but sadly many of the professors are lacking in real teaching as the predominant section of teachers here are researchers and not teachers.
