I was surprised that in the absence of a link to the American city (such as New York, Boston or Chicago) there is a university with excellent technical infrastructure. The nearest town, Fairfax, is very calm, beautiful, but there is no special movement, only measured walks. At the same time, the university itself, in my opinion, is equal with giants from capital cities. I had the opportunity to compare: I took an educational tour of the campuses of American universities.
Another significant advantage - teachers. A very strong preparation: they constantly go to various conferences and teach businessmen, conduct master classes and open tables, workshops. Almost everyone can find publications in scientific journals, participation in research, awards. We know that our teachers are invited to other places to teach (perhaps even more prestigious), therefore it is especially pleasant and respectful to study with them here.
