I absolutely love it here! The students are extremely friendly and open. You can be standing in line for a Starbucks and have an interesting conversation. Some kids are a bit nerdy, but most of them open up after a while :)

Upperclassmen are really helpful to freshmen, there isn't really a divide. The University puts in a lot of effort to create bonding activities, but you're best off just finding your niche and bonding on your own, as most University events are a tad lame.

Parties—definitely at the frat quad. Kids generally pregame in their rooms and then go out to the frats. Not too many people sleep around hardcore, but almost everyone hooks up a little. Drink a lot in the beginning of the night though. Because it gets pretty lame after 3.

Overall, it's a ton of fun. Just make sure you get your work done.
