I was forced to go to this university by my parents since its 5 miles down the street. Beautiful campus. Some really good professors. Not too many challenging courses. 96% of people commute. Most of them live at home, hence no social life. I am an incredibly social person and coming to this university seemed like a great opportunity to meet different people. I did meet and get to know a lot of people but if they are not in your classes, 97% of the time youll never see them ever again and almost 99% of the time, you wont hang out with your classmates outside of school. Parties, really lame. Fraternity parties, I am not a girl so unless I am not a member, I wont be let in. No team spirit. Too many people, sthe resources are strecthed too thin. But it has recently become one of the most competetive universities to get into. For fall 2008, out of 48000 freshman applications, only 5700 acceptance letters were sent out. Definitely go to this university if you live on campus. if not, then…
