An excellent university that is about to become 200 years old. The original buildings still have their architectural charm. Was nice to return and study here again in July. The university rents out their residences during the summer to travelers

The campus is a nice place to drive and walk around. However, if you go at a busy time it can be very difficult to get into if you use the front entrance. I would suggest avoiding a left turn entry, as it is challenging...More
