Political Science, Class of 2015

Typical university, students focus on their studies. There are sororities and fraternities, but they are more visible when they are hosting events for charity or good causes, they are loud or obnoxious that I saw (I wasn't a resident though). The professors (I was there for my Masters, so only took political science courses) are above average and are all very nice and attentive to students. Even with it being political science, the professors NEVER force their beliefs on any student, in fact most do not talk about any of their political views, they just teach. If students (rarely) go on rants on their beliefs, they never talk down to them nor tell them they are wrong for believing what they believe; even if they didn't at all agree personally (I was a graduate teaching assistant, so I did know some of their political leanings). There is one professor who openly tells students how he feels, but never grades students if they are the opposite of his beliefs, and he only "goes off" on the opposing views in a obviously joking and playful manner, and the students love him no matter their beliefs too. The political science professors are the best I've seen.

They were great. New equipment, clean rooms, lots of food choices, I didn't live in the dorms so I can't speak to that and the gym was awesome.
