UMD, Upenn or Uconn for exchange student?
I am going on exchange (spring 2018, business major) and am in the process of chosing my preferences. I am looking for a uni where i can have heaps of fun, make friends, have a good social life with that traditional American college experience (dorms + parties). Considerations: -weather: hate winter ESPECIALLY rain (before you ask, westcoast/florida wasn't an option) -Not fussed about being next to the city, looking more for that ON CAMPUS experience. I heard american unis have that sense of community that australian unis are completely lacking. In this sense, uconn would top the rest since 70% live on campus? -people- not nerdy but also not jerks/cliquey -class sizes- the smaller the better -workload- the less the better. -food- good food because food makes me happy -costs: the cheaper the better. was planning on spending a month afterwards exploring beaches and nyc Any stories from past exchange students would also be great!
