ESF is a small school, but because of that everyone gets to know each other really well. The professors are incredible, and they really care about you doing well individually; they are willing to work with you if you have a problem. ESF is an awesome school- four out of five stars!

I'm just starting my second semester here, and I'll note one thing - the people here are extremely friendly and enthusiastic, but definitely are NOT your typical college crowd. We're not all hippies like you'd expect, but you'll begin to notice that us stumpies (including the professors!) have some odd little eccentricities that you'll either find totally charming, or just plain weird. The campus as a whole (small as it is) tends to reflect the people here, and all of it creates an amazing sense of community.
