Classes are great, professors really care. Guys involved in the D111 sports act as though they are D1. Party scene is lame unless you are said D111 sports player or date one. For the most part it is a pretty incestuous campus with everyone hooking up with whoever looks good on any night. As far as food goes, it all gets old and boring pretty quick. Dorms are A+
