Professors want to see you succeed so they do whatever it takes to pass their class, help you graduate, or advice for certain situations. Registration process is best when your advisor helps you because they want to keep you on tract to graduating instead of taking classes that aren't necessarily going to help the student for their major. There are plenty areas to study around campus rather if it's outside on the grass or inside in the library.
Review Your College
One thing that makes my school unique is the classes are a nice size, which makes the teachers a lot more available to help their students. I would choose this school again because the teachers really care about their students graduating.
The school is pretty good to attend because there's not that many students so teachers can be more focused on helping each student. There's not that many distractions, especially being in a small town. I wouldn't mind doing it all over again because I've did well here but it wouldn't hurt to go visit another school to feel the difference.
