Major: Accounting (This Major's Salary over time)
The undergrad business school is average. The accounting classes are not as in-depth as the curricula for other accounting programs in Virginia. While the core of the campus is attractive the housing is old and a large part of the campus is across a major highway.

There is a lot of drinking and the girls are attractive - but there isn't a lot of resources put towards the co-op/internship program and your freshmen year is spent doing a lot of useless general ed classes.

Its a decent school - however, it doesn't match the hype.
