Professors and academics are good. It's a good place to go if you want a degree from a reputable institution at a relatively inexpensive price. If you're looking for social life, this is not the place for you. Many students drive in for classes and then drive back home to the suburbs. Downtown night life is available but safety outside of campus is a concern.
