The best part about this school is its intellectually engaging atmosphere and the strong sense of community and empowerment that comes from experiencing life at an all women's college. I gleaned a lot of useful knowledege from interactive class discussions. The teachers are quite helpful and supportive and I have made great friends!

I love the accepting, safe environment at my school. I've met amazing people and had great experiences with all of my professors and staff that I've encountered. I get the impression that my school genuinely cares about me as a student across all departments. The only downsides to my college are the distance from my home and the high cost of tuition.
