What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
It's a good school, but one where you only get out what you put in. This school has a surprising degree of academic rigor, but only if you seek it out; it has a lot of advanced and specialist scholarship opportunities, but only if you seek them out; lots of fun programs, clubs, and teams; but again, only if you seek them out. Not a school to write off from the face value of price, size, and typical college statistics.

It is good school with small classes and teachers/programs there to help when you need them. Most students are athletes with a large greek life. Most stay on campus on weekends and they sleep in dorms or frat houses.
