What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
Breath taking when you wake up in the morning and stare out across the bay seeing the sun glisten against the water. Expectations very high since it's an honors college with all classes being very rigorous. Social life for the first month is a bit hard to grasp but after that it's like you've known the friends there your entire life.
David from Rockville, MD
It is a college full of academically engaging professors. It is a college by the water, with beautiful sunsets. It is a college where everyone is welcome to enjoy.
