Finlandia University is a private, 4-year institution established in Hancock, Michigan. Academics at FinnU are primarily geared toward the arts, though there are many degree options available in scientific fields as well. The college is home to the Finnish American Heritage Center, which maintains a museum, an art gallery, and hosts a variety of cultural events. Residential students have a number of options for housing within Finlandia Hall, with some floors being designated for 24-hour quietness, single rooms, or honors students.
For someone who is use to big schools, Finlandia was easy to adapt to for a small school. Since classes were usually full in high school, I enjoy having a smaller portion in one class so everyone gets attention equally. I also like the community here, everyone seems to help each other out.
Small classes are great so that students have personal time with the teacher.
The attendance policy keeps students in line and attending classes.
The buildings are close together so it is not far to walk between in the cold winter.
