Everyone has been welcoming and helpful since I started. The faculty really want their students to succeed.

Each and every staff member and student I have encountered from Spalding has been beyond helpful. Not only that but you can tell they truly care about your self and want to get to know you on a personal level. They ask about you and want to get to know more about you. Even when speaking with staff, whether it's through email or in person, they are friendly. They don't speak to you as if you're just a young kid and as if they are better than you. They talk to you in a way that makes you feel as if you are more like a friend to them rather than a student. Everyone is easy to talk to and easy to get along with. Making friends was easier than expected which means a lot coming from someone who is as shy as I am.
