WHAT I LIKED

The school is small but that means that everyone is friends. Athletics events are always very well attended. Classes are at most 20 kids so you get to know the teachers very personally.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's small so there isn't much to do in the town and there aren't a crazy amount of majors to choose from.

WHAT I LIKED

Instructors are knowledgeable and very helpful, small class sizes make it easy to get help when needed. Campus culture is also amazing; students and faculty are committed to kindness.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The administration is a little understaffed, so if you need something, make sure to ask early.
