The weather here makes the school a terrible place to be. WHen you go for months at a time without seeing sunlight (and I'm really not exaggerating), it can get you down. There is a gray cloud constantly covering the sky from around november to march or april. It makes everyone in a bad mood. Plus it snows like a mother. And classes are never ever cancelled because they are so good at getting around it. There's tunnels connecting buildings so you don't ever have to go out in the cold, bitter weather. Which means in the rare instance of the sun poking through, you usually miss it. Plus it gets to be so bitterly cold that on weekends, people really don't want to leave their room. So the social activities, parties, and whatever else pretty much end around november. But the first month or so can be great.

Another thing I hate is freshman housing, which they started this year. It's retarded, you never even meet freshman and I am sure they have trouble because of it.

To say some good things, the school is very pretty, it has the look of a real college campus. And it is very challenging, so you will get a good education.
