Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

This school is amazing. I've met so many good friends, the academics are great, all the professors truly want to help you. It feels safe and like a close knit community. It's small enough that it doesn't feel overwhelming, but big enough that you don't feel like you see the same people every day.
