I love the small class size! You can meet up with your professors during their office hours or make an appointment! It's a located in Upper Michigan and the best part of it is they embrace it. Finlandia is a private university, which is really nice. They have one building for dorms, two buildings for classes, a gym near by with a new weight room (it's really expensive and open all day!).

Finlandia is great! It is very,very small which is what I prefer, even though I wish it were a little bigger. It is located in a beautiful place, unfortunately for some there may not be a lot to do on the weekend. All the professors I've had so far are great and encourage students to visit and ask questions if they are having trouble. As an art major I can say that is pretty neat to have artists come once an month and display work in the gallery on campus and talk to the art students.
Because the university is so small, the faculty and students are very close. There is are small community that feels like family. The professors are very kind and considerate. They know the material. The class sizes are small which makes learning easier. The campus is small and easy to navigate. The overall atmosphere of Finlandia is welcoming. It's a great school for someone who likes a small town.
