My college is a wonderful place. It has a great teacher to student ratio. This means that the teachers at Wingate are extremely approachable. You begin to get attached to your teachers and actually begin to get a relationship with you teachers. This can allow the students to feel like they belong and this also means that the students are able to work with their teachers more often and find ways to find solutions to problems. The students become a person, rather than a number in a room.
