  • Oct-26-2011 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    They have a lot of outdoor adventure programs that are free or cost very little including shopping trips to San Francisco, Snowboarding/Skiing, and summer activities like rafting and fishing trips. I also found that a lot of students call their teachers by their first name.
