BC: After researching this school I am still very interested in attending. I learned that the campus is a lot larger then I previously thought and, that it is also a much more prestigious then I first thought. The best thing about the school is the colors, and the awesome athletics since they have five national basketball championships. Another great thing is that they beat Michigan State in 2009 to win their fifth national title. My least favorite feature of the school is the competitiveness of admission to the University.
