Registering went from one to three days (some lack of staff communication) to complete and with the Vise President (Dr. Hervey) help registration was completed in a mannerly time. The staff and teachers especially the dorm manager are very kind and help full. Even though it is a small school their is an advantage, even thought it does not have to happen, the staff make it their business to know you and remember your name.
