  • Oct-16-2011 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The campus is beautiful; with art projects, status, and areas set up everywhere. There are also double-decker bike racks for students to keep their bikes between classes (everyone rides between buildings) and trees line the paths. The community is a tightly knit one, so in coming students will always manage to find a friend quickly and have support wherever they are.
