He cares more about Safety than the average student.

The work is not super intensive and not hard. You have to put a lot of time and effort in, but the hardest part about that is there is so much to do here that it gets difficult to manage time.

The education lives up to its name. You WILL learn a lot here so education is not an issue. What's a striking surprise for me was all the research/job opportunities you have here. It's really easy to get a research position even if you're just exploring a major. Other students at other schools would die for these opportunities. Even as a freshman brand new to the school, you can get a research position right in the beginning in the fall.

There are plenty of PE classes and intramural sports for you to play if you're not as hardcore as varsity players. There is a TON of clubs and you'll easily find ones that suite you.

We study hard, but party harder. Weekends are usually filled with one to three frat parties that are hella fun and wild, but not too crazy (because we still care about safety or else we can't throw anymore parties).

I enjoyed my first year here, and even though my work load is getting bigger, there is still time for me to enjoy my college years.
