He cares more about Campus Maintenance than the average student.

Major: Neuroscience/Cognitive Science (This Major's Salary over time)
-Very engaging curriculum with a proper amount of difficulty.
  • Science-bent school with weaker departments in most of the humanities (Social sciences are very strong, though, except maybe Anthropology and History).
  • If you are looking for a challenge, it's possible to take 5 courses a semester (overloading) at no extra cost.
  • Mediocre social life and boring city.
  • Cold.
  • Very nice campus, but the excessive snow can take its toll on the facilities.
  • Oh, food sucks.
  • Besides the problems with food quality and high tuition costs, the school tends to provide a positive atmosphere for students. Unfortunately, the location of the university is less than ideal. I believe the benefits, such as academic quality, rising reputation, and innovative curriculum, not to mention top-notch facilities, can outweigh any minor qualms one may have with the U of R.
