4.0

WHAT I LIKED

It's a small school therefore it's better to connect with people and also it's more interactive to get to know professors and build connections that would allow for students to get along and be in the program during those 4 years and possibly be in contact after college. Although, the material is very challenging being able to push through and understand the content is going to be worthwhile since there will be more experiences and also motivation to continue forward.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I'm a first-generation student affiliated with part of the Latinx community. Although, it stated they care although within these communities outside it's never really affiliated or talked about. This hurts in a way since there's like a limitation of being part of a community and being in contact with people that you want to meet although there is no sense of communication and it's awkward to think that there is care for people of color in a privileged school.
