Mostly middle to upper-class white students, with a large international student population. Culture is typical of a small liberal arts school - focus on athletics, Greek life, but everyone is a serious student first.

Dorms are typical for college freshman and sophomores - small, but livable. Juniors and seniors are forced into campus housing, which is lovely, but ridiculously over-priced. The dining hall has decent options, and there is a cafe and one additional restaurant on campus. Most of the classes that I had were beautiful because they were in a new Government building. The English building and some of the science classes are in older, smaller buildings. The computer facilities are nice, and each library has computers where students can work.

.08 - completely student-led group dedicated to the promotion of responsible alcohol consumption. Community-based learning classes, which only have 1 classroom session per week, with the rest of your class hours being made up in real-world learning situations. Common Hour - a weekly gathering for students, faculty, and the community to come together to discuss a particular topic, see a performance, or engage more deeply in a current event.
