What a wonderful school. Besides the beautiful campus, the classrooms are generally very beautiful (and air conditioned, which is great for the summer!) Help is there when you need it, mostly because the student-to-faculty ratio is so small. Great connections can be made with professors!

I enjoy my school because it easily helps students find their sense of belonging there. I have found my sense of belonging by joining a few of the countless clubs that my school offers. I participate in the Gospel Choir, the Singers Choir, Campus Ministry, and an art club called Red Ink. In addition, I like that my school is a liberal arts college. Because of this, I am able to explore several other fields while exploring the one I currently major in. I believe a liberal arts background is important because it expands one's knowledge in various topics, which is essential in the multi-faceted world we live in today.
