    I love being here. This friendly and quiet atmosphere is great for learning and makes it easy to focus on my studies. I enjoy finding a quiet place in the woods to read a book. There is plenty of space in the library for doing homework.

    The atmosphere here is awesome. Coming from the Philippines, I thought that the transtition would be difficult. I was dreading coming to college because I did not know anybody. However, when I got here I was surprised by how nice the people treat you. They were really open and made my transition easy. Also the teacher's take time to take interest in your life
