A very safe, ethical, and academically supportive institution, the focuses not only on education, but the individuals spiritual strength. The environment is very conducive to learning and fellow students are very friendly and supportive as well.

Love it. Although it is a smaller, private and christian school it has a lot to offer on and off campus. Love the professors and people that work at the University.
