What impressed you positively?

"the happiness of the students!!! it seemed like the whole first year class came to greet us when we were going for lunch. it seems to be a great atmosphere to learn/live in. some professors even came down to say hi. the research track is excellent for people that are interested in research, but dont want to do a PhD (like myself). very impressive facilities and the stats are AMAZing. before i got there, i thought that the 9-5 interview schedule would be unnecessary, but robyn and denise do a great job of organizing the day and it is well worth it! i enjoyed every minute of it. STAN (living, breathing robot) was very cool too" Report Response
