    Cumberland is expensive and for the amount of tuition, the campus could be updated and tweaked a little.

    This small town school gives students an amazing opportunity to pursue their academic dreams. New facilities have just been built to provide a safe place for students to study, as well as a new dorm building. This school is filled with history, but is continuing to expand.

    Cumberland is very expensive, but I honestly believe I am getting my money's worth. I just completed my first year here and I am now taking summer classes and I am very, very happy here. I love the small environment and how easy it is to make friends. Most of the people I have met are very friendly, warm, and accepting (and I say this as a person who has difficulty fitting in sometimes). The teachers truly care about their students and want to see them succeed. When a teacher says, I hope all of you make As I don't think they're blowing smoke; they actually seem sincere.
