Great atmosphere to fucus on studies

I loved the small-town, community feel. The university was welcoming with friendly, helpful staff, and plenty of useful programs and resources. I wish, however, that the program I am currently enrolled in wasn't so limited. I thought it was what I wanted and it ended up being very antiquated and not advanced enough to where I originally thought it was. Aside from that, my experience with the university has been very enjoyable.
