The students are very friendly and everyone smiles as if they already know you. It is not difficult to pick up a conversation with someone you have never seen before here. The population is good in the sense that everyone knows each other. The professors and advisors are encouraging and always make the students smile. Even though there are mostly assignments loaded on us, the professors still send emails to the student on how far they are getting with the assignment. Encourage students to come to their offices each time they find something uneasy while doing the assignment. They simply make you feel at home with their love and care. Everyone here is simply amazing.

Well I have been in this school for a month and the first thing I heard upon my arrival was Greek life. I am really sorry I will not be able to tell you much about it because I'm still learning about it. Tge Greek life often organize functions to help make the community a better place. They also organize parties and fun stuffs to make everyone feel at ease after a long week. I started learning some words in Greek and it's really interesting. The Greek life also makes everyone feel welcome, they work together always and look forward to make new friends. They also like to learn about different cultures and how it relates to different societies in which people are brought up.

The sports don't always win, but the games are intense. The student section is one of the best I've seen. Lots of community people come to the sporting events!
