  • I am a current student here

    I really like the school here, especially if you are a little out going (which I'm not too much). Something that I found so amazing yes amazing, is the friendliness of the staff. You can ask just about anyone and people will go out of there way to make sure they help you to the best of their ability. I give it a 4 because everything that you could expect from a smaller school is here. Also, if you go out of your way just a bit to get involved with some of the many organizations around the school you will have a much better time. The reason I give it a four out of five is based on not being able to find nice quiet spots. If there were more spots were you can just relax in quiet I would give it a five.
