Information Session: Yes - Very informative. Went over the entire process and included a student/faculty panel. They stressed how the professors teach undergraduate students.

I saw a brand new dorm and was told that the re-do a building or two every year, so most have been renovated recently. It was larger than Ohio State, but still kinda small.
