As I connot really speak for other majors, I can speak for the experiences I have had with the aviation program and community. I find that they are both very welcoming and interested in every student that enrolls in the program. Everyone here is very willing to help you excel towards your perfered aviation career.

Its really good , i was there in the summer for a math program and now i'm starting in the fall over there as a freshman , i think its really cool. What makes the school unique is that its a small school but really good in academics at the same time
