4 College Junior

5 College Junior

Academics: I love the school of education here. Everyone is so supportive and helpful to me!

5 College Freshman

Academics: Being in a community organization major program, there are so many opportunities in this area on my campus because of the location. The school is very conscientious of community service and the students are highly encouraged to go out in the community and get involved in ways to make the community better. This works very well for my program. Besides classes and lots of reading and homework, I am required to do some community service hours and work. The school is very helpful to students in finding internship/job opportunities. These things are all an integrative part of the curriculum.
