It depends. For some, it might be the workload. For me, social life is the biggest downside. There is no greek life (which personally I’m totally okay with, but it does mean less parties), and there are no sports teams. The party scene is pretty non-existent. It can be frustrating but once you make your own friends, majority of people have apartments and they will throw parties or bands in school with have parties in Brooklyn. We also have plenty of other colleges around, so if you have friends at those schools (like NYU), it’s helpful. Girls will probably have a tough time dating, gay or straight. Guys will have it pretty easy, gay or straight. The majority of our school is straight girls and gay guys.
There are sports teams! There are sports teams. Sports aren’t a main focal point of our school, but they do exist. Just so the anon knows.
