What impressed you negatively?

"Where to begin. Students seem a little ''slow'' and yet really stressed out about exams that are three weeks away. They chose to study all day instead of going to lectures because the lectures are ''pointless.'' There's no student union for coffee, the library has no windows and awful hours, and everyone lives right next to campus. It's like undergrad all over again. Can you say drama? Valhalla has nothing so you HAVE to have a car." Report Response
