    Other: Quite innovative, some faculty (usually young ones) welcome new ideas. 100 % placement. College will definitely give you a fine education should you choose to attend. Professors are accessible and open, and professors give out their home numbers with regularity. People are generally pretty friendly, although you might get sick of the lack of a significant social scene. It has a good national reputation with strong Alumni networks. You will be prepared to work with top multinationals.
