The latter for the most part. A 3L (now graduate) who is an Olympic powerlifter went all the way up here: http://www.quadsgym.com/
It's pretty hard core. But far from school.
That said...I'm a girl but former figure competitor so I lift regularly and it is decent to lift, but not great. My biggest complaints are that there is no seated cable row machine and only one EZ curl bar which I think is absolute crap...while they have like 8 lat pulldown machines for some reason. BUT...for the money, it really can't be beat and since there are a lot of students coming at random times stuff is usually not too crowded except at peak hours when the real people come to work out (before 8:30AM, 4:30-8:30PM ish)
