It is great being a criminal justice major here, the professors are very knowledgeable and help bring back alumni to give presentations to students about jobs in law enforcement. Also have job fairs throughout the year just for law enforcement on special days. The small classroom size is my favorite! The teachers know you by name. Lots of internship opportunities in all of the programs here on campus.

There are a lot of off-campus dining options near my school. There is one road about five minutes away with restaurants from fast food to sit in. This is very convenient because of how close it is. It is also convenient because of how inexpensive the restaurants are. Also, most every one of the restaurants you get a student discount as long as you have your student ID with you. One of my favorite late night places to go to is cookout!

My experience at this school has been one I will never forget! I have met the nicest people at this school as well as the most helpful people. Every one here has been fantastic. One of my favorite experiences is when the equestrian program brought German clinicians over to the school to let us have lesson with them. I think the equestrian program definitely makes my school unique. I would choose this school over and over again if I could because I have had great experiences in the equestrian program that are going to help me later on in my life.
