Campus Atmosphere:
The campus was okay. I didn't like it at first, but as I got accustomed to it, I started to like the overall feel of it. The things I particularly did not enjoy were the size of the dorm we looked at, and the way it felt that we were constantly walking uphill. I guess the fact that it was an extremely hot day didn't help matters much. I didn't like the buildings as much as I did those of different colleges and universities but they were not at all means hideous or ugly. On the other hand, they weren't very attractive, either.

Did you think that the Information Session was informative? Interview?
I guess the 20-minute video during the information session was a creative method to relay the information. However, I didn't think it was as nice as having the admissions officer speak to the "audience" about the school. It would have been better, in my opinion, had she presented the information herself.
And I did not understand why they split up the parents from the prospective students during the information session for the question and answer session. The parents asked questions to the admissions officers and the students asked questions to the tour guides/current students. It was awkward, because we (the students) had around 30 minutes of silence where no one asked a question. And I guess the next part is actually my preference, but I did not think that the current students showed professionalism when they talked about how they consumed alcohol all the time as well as tips on how to get fake IDs.
I did not have an interview.

I'll post them later.

Maybe I was being a little harsh, but the campus wasn't really what I was looking for.
