Caroline from NC
A great place to start as a freshman. Smaller classroom settings and the school caters to the needs of each individual student.
Jalen from Fort Mill, SC
Queens is a small school with a huge impact. It may seem surreal when you first step foot on the campus, but believe it or not, everyone here is as nice as they seem. Everyone here is exceptionally understanding and the classes are definitely rigorous.
