Very strong technical base, simply unrealistic conditions. In general, a higher education institution is more like a scientific center, research institute. It's so well equipped! I've finished the third year.
We have a few theoretical classes. Much time we spend working in laboratories or doing practical classes. In the agrarian sector, students do not get out from the street at all. In my opinion (and for my profession) this is good, but if you are looking for something more “elite” to sit in a amphitheater in a beautiful suit for a whole day - probably not here. I repeat, the whole university looks more like a movement of crazy professors: seriously, even in a local coffee shop you can hear discussions on experiments or publications.
Of the minuses, I note the remoteness of the university. It is clear that they came to learn, and not to hang out, but sometimes I would like to go somewhere. Denver and Colorado Springs are the closest to us, but to get to them, take a leisurely walk or return, you spend a whole weekend, but because of the workload this possibility is not available.
