What Students Are Saying

3.84 Average Rating
A small, private university with a 13:1 student-to-teacher ratio. The university is located in a beautiful, tranquil setting in the Shenandoah Mountains. Students receive lots of individual attention from instructors.
Justin from Arlington, VA
there are great people here- even though it is a wee bit of a hippie school. the teachers are always more than willing to help you- not to mention your classmates. all-in-all a great school to go to- religious affiliation non-material.
