It's just the perfect fit, no school can compare.

The campus is beautiful, the people are very friendly and welcoming, and the food is amazing. While many don't have AC, the dorms are cosy and reasonably nice. The weather is weird, but tolerable and usually quite nice. Classes are hard, but manageable.

I have never been so happy anywhere. I finally found a place where I feel like I belong. I can't imagine going anywhere else.
