Accomplishes great learning but stressful
A good university, quiet, with good professors with a long experience in the field of teaching. Young professors are at the beginning of their careers, and there are also foreign nationalities who are few teachers and students.
Great school with great people. Big school with a small school feel. Tutors are easily accessible. Can walk anywhere on campus within 10 minutes. Wish I could stay more than four years.
