Paine College is a small campus. Due to the small campus there is you feel as though you are with family. The Professors truly care about you and are always willing to help. You are giving all types of resources to endure you pass and graduate.
Paine College is a small, private, family orientated school; which is part of the reason I came. I like attending this school because of the 1 on 1 tutoring that I receive and also because of the many programs that they offer. We even have a student ran base tutoring program where students are hired to tutor other students in any subject they feel they are weak in. They offer many problems; not just school programs, but also life experiences programs.
