I feel this is the best University.
Tips: I recommend the students before joining this University to take on-campus student's accommodation early if you are preferring to stay in campus accommodation. Since it is quite difficult to get on-campus accommodation in the University campus. I also recommend to be an early applicant of this university.

I have had the best experience at this university.
Tips: If you are looking for safety and quality education and student support this is the college for you with supportive and interactive staff, who always encourage you to participate in activities that enhance your inter personal skills and prepare you for the opportunities
Likes (Indian Food): There are plenty of options in fact plenty of shops from my country which made me feel at home. There is a lot of cuisine diversity you can choose from every corner of the town and you wont feel left out while you are out with your friends. I strongly recommend Guilford area for safety and calm.
Dislikes (Internships): They cannot guarantee internship like any other university, so we should do our best and be in the eyes of advisors and professors showing how sincere and dedicated we are towards our future . So you will have to look for options and approach companies that are close to your desired profession.
