this is a fun hike on campus, about 3 miles there and back with some slopes. It features past student projects. Interesting to walk through the student ideas. There are also wild horses on the trail. We also received an impromptu student concert up on the giant climbing structure, about 20 students had brought instruments and were playing and singing-... More

We planned our vacation around the tour of this college. The tour guide was friendly and smiled a lot, but the emphasis was all on how much fun your kid can have while going there. Anything you would ever want to do for fun could be had close to campus. My daughter was hoping to hear more about their 'learn... More

I love being around smart young people and what better opportunity than to attend a graduation. Took a run through campus early one morning, beautiful.

The campus tour was wonderful. The admissions session was informative and the department advisor gave us the perfect answers. Now just get us in.

The school has gone through some major renovations, has an enjoyable atmosphere, good shows in the auditorium - definitely worth a drive through or a visit. If you live close by, tons of people walk and jog with their dogs through the campus.

The campus and facilities are very nice. The student tour guides are generally good, but some are better than others. I wish the tours included dorm room visits. I might soon have a Mustang in the family.

Wow, we were most impressed by the level of achievement and quality that this school offers. School has a huge set of interests and specialities from nursing, architecture and engineering to liberal arts study. Big Silicon Valley firms come to recruit here on engineering. The campus is nice, a bit eclectic, no one architectural theme. The town is so throwback,... More
