    Pros

    Great student body, lots of opportunities, and great professors in the math department.

    Cons

    Administrative focus on image rather than quality of education

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the students more often! Though we understand there are certain routes of action that aren't necessarily as feasible, for example divestment of fossil fuels, the amount of flat screens also bought with the same money is getting ridiculous.
