Career Preparation
What letter grade would you give your school on how well it prepares students for a career in the real world?

There is a career course you can take for 1/4 of the credit of a regular class (I found it to be useful only in the capacity that it made me accountable for working on my resume and career plan). There is also a career services center which I found largely unhelpful for students in my degree program.

Many students are liberal and have strong beliefs in social justice. This can be great, but can also border on "call-out culture," where it is almost relished when someone does or says something that is not politically correct. There's a lot of anger on campus as far as social justice goes, but it doesn't seem to translate into meaningful changes. There is also a fairly strong lack of diversity, and whatever diversity is there is pretty divided by cliques. There are lots of different clubs to join, from physical activities to politics to drama and board games. The student body seems like it is half made up of students who are hardworking or overachievers and students who are just there on athletic scholarships and don't really care to participate much in academics.

There are three dining facilities. One is located within a dorm and is largely Japanese themed (it seemed very authentic to cater to the large population of Japanese exchange students in that dorm). The other two dining centers are pretty good as well. About half of the dorms seem very nice and modern, and the other half are typical college dorms--less nice, but not gross. I had most of my classes on a brand new building, which spent way too much money on technology in places that weren't necessary, but it was cool. It has a full size theater inside. The computer labs changed halfway through college, and are rather nice now. Most computers can dual boot Windows or Mac, which is great. The library is pretty old school, but has everything you'd need.

When I was there, I was in a petty nerdy board game/ b-movie watching club that was pretty tight knit. There are lots of intramural sports teams that were fun to play on and weren't competitive. Debate was also fairly popular, and the students got to go to some pretty great countries during their junior or senior years.
