Pros
Many of the upper level classes were very informative and I was able to choose how to go about making my schedule.
Cons
Many of the classes I had to take as requirements for both my major and my minor problem involved highly controversial, political, and simply unrelated material. I knew nearly all of my professors’ political orientations and we spent class time discussing them rather than content. It was also very difficult to do well socially without being involved in Greek life.
