It was great for me. I like the small class sizes.

I really do like my school. I know there are some days where sports can get in the way of my education, but the teachers on campus are always willing to help you with that and if you need tutoring it is there for you to take. People care about you on the campus and although it is small, there are still resources that can help you achieve many things

The faculty is good, the campus is adequate, but the people are bland and many whites are racist.
