Environmental Science and Chemistry, Class of 2014

The majority of students are wealthy partiers with little regard for social issues. There are many business and engineering students. There are small pockets of environmentally and socially minded students but the majority is ambivalent. Most students live on campus. Sports teams are the fraternities, as we have no residencial ones. The teachers and staff are excellent.

Party school. Many wealthy students that weren't able to get into their first choice, private schools would come here.

Environmental Science and Chemistry, Class of 2014

The facilities are amazing. Many are brand new and sustainably built. The food is literally gourmet, as the caterer is Bon Apetit. Some of the freshman dorms are sketchy, but better than average. The upperclassman dorms are all newly renovated and set in picturesque locations adjacent to the bay. The grounds are well maintained and beautiful.

Everything was pretty updated. The freshmen dorms were gross, but that's pretty similar to most schools. Computer lab was small.
