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

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.
