Major: Communications (This Major's Salary over time)
General education: IC really cares about its undergraduate students. There are few graduate programs, so they really focus on undergrads, not just a bunch of big lecture halls so the profs can focus on grad students. The small class sizes and the individual focus the professors can give was the best part of the education I received.

Communications education: Communications professors were excellent and taught things in a practical manner that helped me on the job. Sometimes professors can get more academic/theoretical about their areas, but the IC communications professors taught you how to edit, write, etc for media in a hands-on, practical fashion. They did go over theories and academic analysis, but it was always combined with the practical how do I write for a broadcast side. Excellent, well rounded education—they make you take a major outside communications to make sure you are getting exposed to things besides just media studies. Can't recommend it enough if you're looking to go into the media, I use what I learned there everyday.

Social life: No frats, but it does have a reputation as a party school. I wasn't a big party person but I still managed to find people to hang out with. If you're not into parties the best way to meet people is to join a club with your interests and make friends there—IC is really good about this—lots of clubs for any activity you can think of. So even if you're not into partying you can still find your niche if you focus on your interests.
