At Converse College not only will you receive a quality education at an affordable price. Professors want to make sure that you succeed and they are normally willing to meet with you at any time.

I found the professors to at times be unavailable. I worked hard but sometimes didn't feel that my work really paid. I had a very difficulty first semester with very little emotional support except from family

My school is a great Liberal arts school. The only problem I find in the school is the lack of majors and classes to choose from. The school is small but there are not an abundance of choices. But I would choose my school to attend for years to come.
