Academics- Good. The professors demand a lot out of students. You will learn, especially in science classes. Professors are easy to access and are very willing to help.

Student body - Very strange people. If you are not an athlete or Greek you will have a very hard time meeting and befriending normal people. Outside of these two groups, it is as if all the weird people from high school gathered together and attended UPS (oh, should i say Puget Sound?). The administration doesn't care about students. Always cracking down on parties, any event that is fun and has a possibility of underage drinking. Students do NOT come first. Then you graduate, and they call you every night at dinner time to ask you for money. Which brings me to next topic.

Finances- For $250,000 if you are not going to major in something that is going to pay, you should NOT attend this school. This is for you future music, art, history, english, etc majors. Interesting because this is what most students end up majoring in…

Random Lies they tell you -

1) "High percent of students live on campus". What they don't tell you is that the University owns several of the surrounding HOUSES up to several blocks away. Living in these University owned houses is still considered "on campus". However, since these students have kitchens, back yards, etc they have no reason to ever come to campus except for classes, so they in no way contribute to the "high percent living on campus" feel that the statistic normally represents.

2) Scholarships- many people do not get their scholarship after the first year. Beware.

3) Classes - they require so many "liberal arts" classes, and the list is so small to chose from, that you end up taking 1 year worth REALLY worthless classes. (Oh, and you are paying $40,000 to take them)
