The school has small class sizes, so you can get one-on-one help from teachers. It is easy to get involved. The campus is small, no need to wake up an hour before class! The farthest walk is 4 mins (2 mins if you run). Every student must complete and internship (student teaching/clinicals count) before they graduate. Service Learning is a giant part of the school and how we can give back to the community.

I enjoy being here most of the time. My classes are going well for the most part and the community is very close. Some of the professors are not consistent with grades or classes and that makes it difficult to keep up and maintain a good grade. Some of the professors here I believe are used to working at larger universities, whereas we have a small campus and small population.
Living on campus is actually ridiculously great. Being close to campus and having the community available from all of the students in the dorms, makes lasting friendships possible and easy - however, sometimes the housing process can be a bit strenuous since there' limited housing for students and you have to sign up quickly, it's still a wonderful atmosphere in the residence halls.
