What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
this is the perfect school for faithful republicans who want to become more active in politics. there is a large focus on political activity and the development of critical thinkers and active citizens. even the less popular majors are excellently staffed with enthusiastic professors.

i love my school. however i do work very hard and my grades don't always reflect it. there are some problems with my school but i'd rather be here than anywhere else.
