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

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.

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.
