Amazing education. The professors are amazing and there is an incredible amount of opportunities for research that you wouldn't have at other schools.
The social life is definitely not that of a big school but you build a lot of strong friendships and people generally are very friendly. You build a strong relationship with your class and school as a whole.
And oh yeah... the weather is amazing. Trust me, that's important
A good school, possibly not for me. Access to the resources of all 5 colleges makes it as good as a big university, while still allowing intimacy. My boyfriend goes here but studies Computer Science (his major) mostly at Harvey Mudd. However, with my health problems I could have used a little less intimacy when every absence is noted by the professor. Professors are mostly good, there's a lot of activism available on campus if that's your thing, and housing is nice, especially if you're sub-free. Be warned: the Pre-Med program does not give med-school related skills, and Cognitive Science will make you take a lot of Linguistics prereqs.
