What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
I suggest, not only for student for this school but for any prospective, to research the weather in the area, and do a visit during their worst season. This gives you a better idea of how you will be able to live in the climate. Also, I recommend determining what area you would like to live in, urban, rural, suburban. This can help you eliminate schools in general. Since this is a small liberal arts college I recommend doing and overnight, and getting acquainted with the campus/staff. Any prospective would benefit from an interview with the admissions staff, as well as an overnight and visiting a class.

Bring heavy winter clothing. It gets very windy. Take advantage of programs and clubs early to enhance your experience.

Prospective students should ask as many questions as they can while checking the school out so that they know whether it is the best fit for them and if you decide to come here find a really great professor or dean that can be your mentor intellectually.
Trevor from Geneva, NY
Try to meet as many people as you can right from when you get on campus. Also just visit all the schools you can to get a feel for which is the best fit.
