In 2001, not much. Social media wasn't a big thing then and my adviser was not really engaged.

All students were above average - the cream of the crop from around the country--they were very diverse and committed to learning..

Back then, very science & tech oriented. Not much arts. Home made explosives were a form of entertainment - and please not EMRTEC (kind of part of the college) hired many students to work on explosives.

Lots of new dorm rooms, many of them are small apartments. Computer labs in almost every building. The entire campus has wi-fi. Small classrooms for up to 30 students, most of the classes are small and taught by professors. The dining hall is nice but the food service provider is overpriced and the food is terrible.

Then, there was one computer lab. The dorms had dial up internet access for a fee. There was a dining hall that gave students food poisoning at least once a week. The classrooms were varied because the buildings were of different ages. The newest housed the chem labs and they were beautiful. The dorms - some very old and rather rickety, one was made of cinder blocks so had that prison feel.

We have a lot of interest based clubs which include academic (astronomy, physics, engineering), sports (rugby, skateboarding, fencing, rock climbing), special interest (chess, jazz band, billiards, LGBTQ, food) and community service. We have a club devoted to putting on a performance of the Rocky Horror Picture Show every semester for over 25 years; proceeds benefit the homeless shelter. Tea Club & Waffle Club provide tea & waffles in the evenings and during dances. The Society for Creative Anachronism has been on campus for 37 years.

There was a very active SCA group, which was great. The rockhound groups were always very welcoming. The area in general has plenty of outdoor activities - hiking, sand dunes, rugby, biking, etc.
