I love the atmosphere it is very calming and friendly, the staff is absolutely amazing and has time do get to know every student instead of only know you by name or word association, it is an open campus but closed at the same time, as in it is open to all but closed off from the world where you cannot hear the cars passing by but instead see deer roaming the school grounds. There is many places you can go to relax or go to hang out with your friends. I would not change anything about this school except for the price, the price is high but this is a private university so it is about average for any other private university.

This school Is wonderful. There is a strong sense of community and an environment that focuses on the growth of the individual. Especially in academics, relations with others, and overall personal growth. Yes, it is a small school. Class options are limited for some majors and there isn't a huge party/ social scene. However the quality of the education is high. My class sizes as a first- year range from 12 - 20 students. The professors know who you are, what your goals are and are willing and ready to help you when you need it. These connections with faculty can help with careers and internships. My opinion is that these things are far more important than a busy social life.

My school is small and is a home away from home. I love that when I get up in the morning, though my class is only five minutes away, it takes me 15 minutes to get there because of all the people who stop and talk to me on the way!
