Major: Language - French/Spanish/etc. (This Major's Salary over time)
In my opinion, this university provides the students with enough tools, resources, and quality educators to attain an excellent education. There will always be certain classes, professors, classmates, clubs, dorm rooms, etc., that don't meet expectations. If you're willing to put forth the effort and carve out a place for yourself and take an active role in your learning, this is a great place to be. If you need a more intimate setting or need to feel taken care of, try the Residential College or maybe a different school altogether.

My major was Spanish. However, I also completed all the pre-med prereqs, so I'm familiar with some coursework and professors in the sciences. In general there was great support, with organized study groups and plenty of GSIs and profs holding office hours at various times.

I find it difficult to evaluate an entire university based on my limited experience, but I wouldn't have gone anywhere else.

One note: for those who don't do well with cold and snow, bundle up!! The biggest pain at this school was walking from class to class (and to and from my house) in the freezing cold.
