  • A combination of tradition, architecture, nature, beauty and serenity. I was there when graduations took place, further adding to its attractive appeal.

  • Very cool university! Perfect location. Classic-looking buildings with modern equipment inside. Visited a chemistry lab - nicely organized. Also the book store is good, bought a couple souvenirs. Parking is expensive tho on Rue University.
  • The campus is so gorgeous, especially on a sunny day! We came on a Sunday so a lot of the buildings were closed, but we were still able to enjoy the architecture from the outside, as well as take a look in the Redpath Library.
