    Love the profs. They honestly care. And they really want you to publish. Plus Elliot Park is an incredible place to live and play. Restaurants, art galleries, parks, concerts—everything is at the doorstep. Including internships!

    The location is awesome, there's a lot to do right off of campus. I always feel safe while on campus even though i'm in the heart of the city. It offers an amazing spiritual experience which is my favorite part. The professors and education that you'll receive is amazing! The food wasn't the best but they're renovating the entire cafeteria which is something to look forward to.
    My learning experience has been incredible! The professors truly have a passion for what they teach, and they communicate it so well! I have only ever had one bad professor the whole time I have attended, and the rest were absolutely wonderful! My love for God has grown so much, as well as my knowledge about him. A great learning experience!
