Mathematics, Class of 1986

There was (and still is) a strong alumni organization to match recent graduates going into business and finance with professional contacts. The same is somewhat true for people in the arts.

Alumni
Mathematics, Class of 1986

Tremendously varied. There were indigent students on scholarships as well as foreign royals. It was, as they say, a very rich tapestry. Despite the elitist reputation, almost all the people I knew well were egalitarians with progressive political views.

very new, modern facilities. state of the art technology (you get what you pay for; private Ivy University)

Rated January 2016
Alumni
Mathematics, Class of 1986

Some were spiffy and state-of-the-art. Others were somewhat antiquated and rustic (like the physics labs). Considering that many of the buildings were hundreds of years old, their condition was remarkably good, even the ancient ones.
