I love where I go to school, money is the only rough part.

What makes my school unique is that it is small. This allows classes to be tiny and the professors to know their students by name. Professors are always happy to lend a helping hand in learning the material, or even helping the students out with personal issues if needed. The school is like a family, and a home away from home.
