This was by far the best place for an education. I previously went to Arizona State University, however I was student #45/390 in most classes. I love the location, and the Iota Alpha Omega frat. was awesome!

Mars Hill has great sites and views from inside out. You have the beautiful campus on the inside and the even more beautiful mountains on the outside. I would rate mars hill as an excellent school, from the people to the classrooms it always seems to amaze.
