    Campus Safety

    The school has had 1 car broken into in its history. No other incidents have happened on the school property.

    Clubs and Activities

    Its really not the typical school setting so the only real opportunity is to be on the student senate, which is great for your career later on.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who want a program with no distractions outside of your major.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Going to the Sharp Edge bar for lunch is pretty much the norm for the students. GREAT food and good beer specials.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is fairly inexpensive, the real world experience that you get from the embalming program is priceless. The program is very intensive but focuses entirely on what a prospective embalmer/funeral director/ funeral business owner would need.

    What to do for fun

    The student senate provides a welcome party for each new class which is fun. Since the classes are generally small students become close friends quickly and there is always something to do in the Shadyside area.

    Food and Dining

    There is a student lounge with a refrigerator, microwave, vending machine and soda machine which is nice for the small school. There is a whole foods market, and a few restaurants with in walking distance.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms for this school, so living at home or at an apartment complex near the school is best.

    Academic Rigor

    Be ready to work hard.

    Tips for prospective students

    Its a lot of work, the course load is very heavy but the professors are willing to help. Take good notes and make full use of the professors knowledge, they are always willing to help and explain things further during office hours.

    In three sentences

    Great focused school, fantastic staff. Heavy course load but the embalming program is wonderful and hands on.
