All internships, part time/ full time jobs, alumni network and recruitment on campus are high. The opportunities that are available on and off campus are incredible! The tight niche community allows for current and past students to become involved with something bigger than themselves. The sky is not our limit, we have opportunities of a life time and we just have to be brave enough to take them.

This is my first semester at college, but so far it has been a great experience! I came here knowing no one but I was welcomed with open arms from people in my dorm. I have made friends quickly and I believe that they will be friends that will be by my side threw my college year. The dorm atmosphere is very friendly and everyone seems to get along very nicely. This will allow for more bonds and friendships to be built.

This was the only college campus that when I toured it I felt like I was home. The people here are so friendly since it is a small town. Even though it is a small town, there are so many things going on during the week that you forget that it is a small town. The way the campus looks and feels all the time is so welcoming and beautiful! Whenever I have to go back home to Lubbock, I get sad leaving Canyon and already want to go back! I'm so happy I found this place an I really recommend it to anyone can!
