I'm sure there are more systems in place now than there were 20 years ago. Then, I joined academic clubs, societies, and had a close group of friends with wide nets into the business and political worlds. It was much more personal in those days. The curriculum was excellent - broad and deep, as focused as a student might want. The faculty was excellent as well. The administrative and academic staff with whom I interacted, were also highly qualified and dedicated to student success. It was a great experience.

Widely diverse student population. It was a commuter campus, so defining a single culture would be nearly impossible for me. Many of the people I graduated with had stories much like my own: we worked full time and went to school at night. I suppose it was a 'hard-working, dedicated' culture
