This school is great if you love nature and outdoors. There are a crazy amount of activities to do here if you know where to look. People are nice.

I think that this university is a great place to have experiences that test your independence and resourcefulness. The people you meet here are great and filled with big hearts; you'll rarely be bored because you'll have a vibrant social life. The campus cafeteria could use a little variety, but for the most part, services and provided and the campus facilities are satisfactory.
