great school to attend, small class sizes and low tuition.
Jennifer from Rock Port, MO
Peru is a small campus community with excellent opportunities. The education I have received thus far is absolutely invaluable and I am excited for my final semesters. This campus has given me so much and I hope that I have been able to return the favor in some way.
