Sarah from Pennsylvania
I would definitely choose this school if I had to do it all over again. It is a beautiful campus, the teachers really care about the students, and there is a really great community feel to it. The science building is amazing for science majors, and I really love the faculty in my major. I have made lasting friendships that I treasure.
