I've heard most students in my field find jobs, but I've got a few year before I experience that first hand.

There's a variety of professors with many teaching styles. They are generally available and always willing to help. Some even make small talk or go out of their way to make sure you're doing okay when you stop by to ask questions. In two semesters, I've only had one professor who I expressly didn't like. The class sizes are appropriate, and the professors provide a nice environment to learn.

For the price, it's a good university. The biology department is funded the best. The food is amazing, and the campus coffee place serves Starbucks at decent prices. The library has computers and printers, both of which are free to use. The dorms are a little old (except Black Kettle).
