WHAT I LIKED

It is not too big, but it is not so small that you know everyone. The staff and faculty are amazing and help everyone feel included and help get students involved on campus through the various clubs, organizations, and events.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is currently (spring 2022) very limited parking due to campus-wide construction projects. As a commuter, if you don't arrive early you will probably have to walkways to get to the buildings.

WHAT I LIKED

The campus is super nice, and the classes are never cramped full of students. I've never had more than 45 students in a given class, and it made the learning environment much more productive. Not only that, it allowed for a more personal one-on-one experience with professors, because you don't feel like just a number in a sea of students. The professors in the Communications program are fantastic. Always ready to help, give advice, just chat. The lectures are awesome, too. Super engaging, and when they feel like they aren't reaching students, they get our feedback and have made a bunch of changes in the program over the last year and a half to address engagement! They want us to feel like we're learning and taking away tools that we'll use in our daily work.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There's NOTHING to do in Alexandria, but the school definitely tries to make up for that by hosting a lot of student-generated events and making accommodations for any hobbies/clubs/groups that want to host something for other students. It really is a great administration. They have a large portion of younger professors, younger administrators, etc. which has been great for making the campus feel like home. Outside of not much to do off-campus, it's really such a great, albeit smaller, university.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Classrooms could use a little updating, but for the most part, they are kept up nicely.
