faculty and staff very helpful and easy to get ahold of, want you to succeed.
extremely expensive.
beautiful campus with many activities for everyone.
Rose from Jay, ME
The atmosphere is community-oriented. Very small, close-knit community. Almost like continuing high school as it is a very small community of people.
