    My department's culture was probably different than the school as a whole. The university as a whole was filled with a greek party mentality and a rape culture. I was in the art department which was close knit, partially because we were severely under funded and cast to the side compared to engineering and agriculture.

    Again, my department was severely underfunded compared to the rest of the school. I know my school had excellent resources for engineering students. I took advantage of some nice gyms. Some of the libraries were quite nice. The art department had some cool tools you could check out like fancy cameras, projectors, b&w and color dark rooms, excellent printers- though they could be expensive to use. Most of the art department's buildings were falling apart around us.
