Alumnus - Grad Year 1993

Overall Rating

I loved the school's diversity - in all areas including socio economically. It felt like a little school inside a big school - meaning I met new people until the day I graduated but always ran into them time and again. Also, I attended the school of Social Work which truly IS a little school inside a big school. To top it off it's an education bargain.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1978
