We are thinking of adding this to my son's list. It checks a lot of boxes for him (right size, beautiful campus, residential community, less cold than northeast, friendly, strong academics.) However, I can't get a read on the vibe/culture. Some say collaborative, some say intense/competitive (not what we are looking for.) Can anyone help clarify? Not afraid of hard work/motivated students but trying to avoid cut-throat, stressed environments. Will major in STEM in some capacity, but not pre-med, probably not engineering, not CS, in case that makes a difference. Thank you!9 replies
