I would definitely choose this school. Not only is it convenient but it is also resourceful. I have found many helpful resources availible at my school. Also the professors actually care about their students.

I have had a great experience so far! The professors are easy to approach and very helpful. There are so many different opportunities for students on campus with the wide variety of activities and clubs that students can engage in. The campus is beautiful and only a 30 minute train ride away from the city which is great! If I could go back I would definitely choose this university again.
