If my major was offered at another school, I would not go there. It seems that the school doesn't always relay changes about programs and requirements to the professors.

It's Been something new and refreshing. It has a great small town feel with big time college resources. It's diverse and entertaining and I know there are plenty of resources to help me with all my needs.

I loved my time at Reinhardt and I wish I was returning but I had a few bumps in the road and can't return this fall. But I will definitely visit from time to time. You meet amazing people!
