I love this small private school! Everyone on campus is kind and willing to help out. The professors are wonderful and want to see their students succeed. There are many activities on campus from intramural sports, yoga, movie nights, trivia night, plays and musicals, and debates. The area surrounding campus is okay, but I would not recommend walking alone at any point in the day. The campus is about two blocks from the city center which has plenty of restaurants, and the King's bookstore.

The school molded me into a better person, student, and professional. Perfect school for someone who wants to be directly involved with the inside and outside campus community. You know everyone and make long lasting relationships. High growth potential as an institution as well. Constantly making positive changes. Solid leadership.
Awesome Place to go to school. I love it there! Even the courses are amazing, the sports program is amazing. The school cares about their athletes.
