Went to a master's program audition/interview. All staff and faculty were very nice, warm, friendly, and professional. Visited Stiles Hall and the RA at the front desk was very nice, helpful, and down to earth.

While this university is an important educational institution and a good place to study, the campus is not all that attractive to the tourist. Lots of new buildings during the urban renewal period. They are modern and lack charm.

The buildings are very much integrated into the surrounding environment and, without the badging, would be unremarkable. The Admissions Visitor's Center is stunning, with historic...More
