Not very many positives I can honestly say about the school, in my senior year and still thinking about transferring. Parents wouldn't let me transfer freshman year so I have been miserable ever since; tried by hardest to enjoy it but failed.The school has many problems.. If you plan on getting in a good graduate program avoid this school at all costs unless you want to spend every last minute studying and never have any free time. The classes curve to a 2.7 and most science classes are all premed which is ridiculous considering that 85 percent of the class probably won't be admitted to med school bc their extremely low grades…Social life is pretty awful, you pretty much have to join greek life to make friends. People are approachable, but aren't for a good reason. I had been lied to in classes about hw do dates intentionally among many other things. Everyone on campus has this sense of entitlement that they are the best people to ever walk this earth and everyone else is some kind of second class citizen, which is reallly annoying because no one has any compassion for anyone else, and only makes friends in order to obtain some sort of self benefit. The weather is god-right awful to which just makes things even more depressing. YOu can go weeks here without a drop of sunlight. The wind chill is also terrible so it can feel a dozen degrees colder than even other regions in the midwest. SOme profeessors are decent though and there is a decent amount of research positions if you even have the time to apply yourself considering the breadth of the classwork. Good luck in college search, would not recommend if you are looking for a good social life, livable climate, decent gpa, and free time. Would apply if you are arrogant, going into a field where ungrd instution matters the most, want to live in a very hostile environment, have an easy major.
