Sheritta from Birmingham, AL
Miles college is a very religious college. The teachers, counselors, and students are very helpful. I'll give miles a 10 on a scale of 10. It's small but it's as fun as a university. Any college is all about what you make of it. Miles is such a friendly and helpful college. My first year I thought I wasn't going to enjoy it because its small but I LOVE my HBCU !
