    I know they have a career services site, and an alumni network / job board tool. I never really took advantage of those though. (Though I wish I had, while I was still there / recent alum!)

    newer and older buildings great, middle of the road ones, not so much.

    philosophy, math, history, Class of 2004

    They were good/great when I was there (10 years ago). But seriously they've gotten WAY WAY better the past ten years. I visited and was pretty blown away by the updates -- especially to labs, libraries, classrooms.

Activities and Groups

What overall letter grade would you give the activities/groups at your school?

5 Based on 3 Reviews
  • Alumni
    Applied math, Class of 1973

    Popular activities - sports. Unique - classical events, like Latin carols

    philosophy, math, history, Class of 2004

    Hmm. A capella was popular -- I'm not sure if it was any more so than lots of other colleges. Lots and lots of writing/publications (including interesting niche ones, not just your standard student newspaper).
