this question is too broad. a mixture of pre-professional, liberal arts and science majors. lots of serious and brilliant students, others who get where they are going by discipline and hard work, others who coast by on family connections. Not a party school, no fraternities, but there is an active social life for those who seek it, and many entertainment/cultural opportunities in Cambridge and Boston.
