I love all of my teachers here, they makes it easier to learn but at the same time make it FUN for all! Love this place, so easy to get around also.
Cristina from Cochranton, PA
You can tell the teachers really care about students; a lot of them will go above and beyond to help you succeed.
The small class sizes allow you to ask questions and interact with classmates; the professor actually knows your name and it's just a really friendly learning environment.
There are always tons of events going on around campus, which offers great opportunities to new students to meet friends!
