What impressed you negatively?

"The school building is older and small and the tour was a bit disorienting. I'm from the area and when I asked what there is to do for fun as a young professional in Rockford they listed off a bunch of stuff, but it just sound like a lot of public relations stuff meant to 'sell me' on the city."
