    No idea; I do not use them as they're primarily focused on the east coast.

    Anthropology, Class of 2013

    Regular networking receptions with alumni, career counseling services and checks to resumes and cover letters, various recruiting career fairs for large corporations and non-profits.

Students and Culture

What letter grade would you give the students/culture at your school?

    There are a number of incredibly sheltered and entitled students. That said, the professors have high expectations and do not accept middling effort.

    Anthropology, Class of 2013

    Very collaborative and intelligent, somewhat high brow but in a good way. It's a very "work hard play hard" atmosphere, so a lot of students cut loose on the weekends.

    Fantastic - all of the buildings are older but in a classic way. Facilities were all well-maintained and really helped with the comfortable and collegiate atmosphere of the school.
