For a small school, this school has truly impressed me. I have regained my passion and strive for my interest and talents in Mathematics. I received my Bachelors Degree here and I am pursuing my Masters now. My teachers have a strong interest in fueling my passion and raising me higher and higher in my studies and intellect in this field. They believe in me and in turn it makes me believe in myself more and more.
I have realized that there has been much construction occurring on campus during the summer. Many of the facilities could use some help because some are older. They have done a really good with the buildings that have been constructed in the previous years. There are a lot of spots on campus where students can just stop and hang out that are convenient. Although the library is not one of the buildings that have been newly constructed, they have more than enough resources available. The students themselves are always coming up with event ideas, like now they already many events planned out for Welcome Back Week. The faculty and staff usually support the students with their ideas.

Actually I was very surprised at how much school spirit there is. It seems that clubs such as Pep Squad and the band are the talk of the campus. I have realized that when it comes to colleges and universities in the south, the band is more important than the sports. This past year was not the best for our Football team but hopefully it'll be better this year. The basketball team did good overall. Although there is much school spirit, they are working on even more student involvement. There are always opportunities when they are trying to encourage students to be involved. The facilities in my opinion could use a lot of help, such as the fields and football arena. There is usually many people at the games especially football. Although there are problems, the school is working to fix them, like any other school. I have realized many of the students that are saying bad things about it, are those that are currently not involved in any activities.
