I just love the variety of classes that are available to students. It's a little bit of everything, and I can't wait to explore my options.
Will enjoy being here
The Campus is pretty small and everything is within walking distance. I particularly love that it's in a small town setting with still lots of things to do when not on campus. Elkins is quiet, lovely and just quaint enough to feel homey. Plus it's an hour away from where I live!
Bang for the buck
Being a private school, it's a little more expensive than public colleges. It's worth it though! Small campus, small student population and a small town are worth it!

It is a small school for personalized education. The faculty and staff know each student by name and care for the well being of every individual. A unique college experience we will be gained from attending this college.
Tips for prospective students
Expect a college where you know everyone and you can have a say in everything that goes around campus. The professors know you personally so a better learning environment. It is also open for diverse opportunities of internships and practicum.
Academic Rigor
Very Personalized education. Small classes with maximum 32 students. professors know everyone by name so they know when you are not doing so well in class and will help you in what ever way they can.
Dorm Life
Regular doubles and singles, suites if requested. Academic halls for those who prefer quite study environment. Lots of student life activities in the dorms to help you get to know your neighbors well.
Food and Dining
The food in the cafeteria is okay to good depending on your preference of food. Regulars include main entries, Asian stand, Salad bar, deli station, cereals and desert stations. Occasional bars include sushi bar, Mexican stand, hot dog stand, and the once in a while international food fest.
What to do for fun
Lots to do on campus on campus. Beginning from the campus gym and swimming pool to the Ice house which holds parties and concerts ever week from Thursday through Sunday. Ice house is also on campus Bar. Parties are thrown either by the school, one of the suites and/or the Greek community.
Bang for the buck
The experience gained in the school is definitely worth every penny spent.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Being a small school has its benefits. Including BBQ night with the schools president who has an open door policy, Skydiving simulations, and other activities held ever Friday by the campus activity board.
Great for these types of students
Students who want to just find an air to breath from all the hustle and bustle of city with out loosing all the fun. For those who really work for their academic future. It is also a great place for international students.
Clubs and Activities
Not many clubs in town, but there is a bar on campus, the ice house serves the purpose. There are lots of activities ranging from summer activities like in the rivers of the surrounding area to snow activities.
Greek Life
Many Greek life, not so popular though. The dominant one is Sig Ep, a fraternity!
Campus Safety
The campus is under 24 hours surveillance. It is a very safe environment. I have walked to and back from the library at any given time during the night and nothing has ever happened to me. I guess that assures the safety of the school and the city.
