    Things are only awkward if you make them awkward. If you want to become a leader servant and learn tid-bits for life on being a leader as well as serving those around you come to SVU. It has a great sports program, you can try any sport you desire and become a collegiate athlete at a D3 level.

    This school is great for students who want to make a difference and be proactive in their education. Not only do your friends want you to have a good education, but your professors want you to work the hardest and be the best student that you can be. You won't have to worry about you professors forgetting about you or not knowing who you are because they make such a great effort to know you personally.

    Only come here if you are adventurous, willing to obey the honor code and love small! This campus is small, and therefore it is located in a small town. The faculty and staff is easy to work with and willing to do everything in their power to do what is best for you!
