UD's got a good academic program - it's not Ivy league, but nontheless challenging (especially for engineers and a few other select majors). It's real highlight, though, is the campus atmosphere which is friendly and inviting. It's a college campus, and something of a party school, so be aware of this if you're school searching, but don't discount the value of a campus where it's easy to make friends. Lots to do in the area, lots of places to eat around the school as well... even discounts from the pizza places! Not a bad deal.
PROS: Academics, atmosphere
This site [as of writing] lists Frank Z as used car sales only, but they also do a lot of new car sales, and it was honestly the best experience one could ask for in buying a new vehicle. They staff were very friendly, helpful, answered questions knowledgably and honestly [admitting if they didn't know something, but finding the correct answer], and never pressured us to make a purchase or even a decision. On top of this, after looking at the car information, we found that they didn't have the 'ideal' car for us, but they found one in the area and brought it to us at a better price than anyone else was offering. An all-around excellent experience.
PROS: Customer service, price, selection
I was honestly rather offended by my experience at this dealership; the prices weren't terribly stellar to begin with, and I'll admit to being preferential to American-made, but in the interest of getting the best car, I thought I'd check it out. Well, not only would the staff NOT directly answer any of our questions ["The brochures are over there"], but they were condescending in their manner towards us for the entire time we were there and showed no interest in selling us a car. On the plus side, if you know what you're looking at and don't mind the lacking customer service, they do have a large selection, and I understand from others that Honda dealerships will order a car for you if they don't have what you want in stock. Best of luck.
CONS: Customer service, prices
I don't paintball much, but the experience here was very good. Prices are reasonable [for paintballing], the course is excellent, and the people are a lot of fun. I-70 is also very easy to work with for scheduling group activities on their course - lots of fun and some good teambuilding to go with it. The location is a bit out of the way, but sometime next decade when the highway construction clears up it'll be an all-around great place to paintball.
PROS: Course, people
The ONLY gym I've found in the Dayton area that'll let you come in and workout at 2 in the morning if you wish. But that's not the only reason to join - excellent *well-maintained* equipment, friendly comfortable atmosphere, personal training is available, classes included with membership, and prices competitive with any other gym I've found. Bonus: they even have student rates [yay for college]. Highly recommended for anyone, especially night owls. Would be better if they were a straight 24/7 gym, but what they've got works great.
PROS: Hours, equipment, people, price
CONS: Hours [see review]
It's a college town, and there are a hundred companies that want to make custom t-shirts for you and your organization, but it's Alley Cat that does it best. With them, you get exactly what you want with no compromise in your design or the product quality. Prices are competitive with all the others, but their service doesn't come close to what we got working with these guys. Major kudos for taking good care of your customers.
PROS: Service, quality, prices
Just what you'd expect of a mid-sized mall - all the normal shops, a Starbucks, food court, and huge parking lots. The location is also great, with lots of eating options in the area, a movie theatre, and very near to the highway. The mall's fault is probably the lack of special events - they happen every once in a while, but certainly not often, keeping it from being an 'anytime' time-killer (and money killer). That said, it's a very well-designed and maintained mall; always clean; and great shopping.
PROS: Location, prices, selection
CONS: Nothing special
Don't get me wrong - this is an AMAZING grocery store, and if you can afford to shop there regularly, more power to you, because I wish I could too. Very good selection with excellent fresh products and customer service that rivals five-star restaurants. My only complaint is that as a college student, with Kroger, Meijer, and Super Walmart all less than 2 miles away, it loses to the lower prices on everyday items... not to say that the occasional Killer Brownie doesn't require a special trip, though.
PROS: Selection, quality, service like whoa
CDs cost too much. P2P downloading will land you in jail. But used CDs are cheap and legal. Second Time Around has very competitive prices on used CDs, and they guarantee a skip-free experience. The selection is the store's only downside, but with hundreds (thousands?) of CDs in stock, you'll find something you like. Video games and movies are also available, but not something I looked at.
PROS: Price, location, quality
I had no idea how much it cost to frame something until I started looking... ouch! But the 'House of 10000 Picture Frames' really came through with prices well below those of competitors, and they made absolutely sure that I was satisfied with the work they'd done. I was very impressed. The only downside is the high cost of framing, but that's the case anywhere - just watch for sales or the paper for coupons, and the price will come out just fine. You'll be amazed at the selection they offer, and the quality of work you receive.
