    The lifestyle one chooses in college is up to that person. If you want academically charged lifestyles those are available through the clubs. If you are athletic there is rock climbing, bike trails, and the mountains close by for skiing. Also, if you want social stimulation there is a large network of personal activites that can be easily accessed. I enjoy a little of everything, so I am completely content with my life here.

    It is a beautiful campus in a beautiful place with so much to do. The college really interacts with the outside community, which was really important to me. The students are accepted and welcomed by everyone, and the college gives a a lot back to the community as a whole. Everyone is really considerate and conscious of others beliefs and feelings toward a wide variety of subjects, including minority background, sexual orientation, and political beliefs.
