Unless you are in Adventure Education or Environmental Science, then don't waste your time and money here as that is where all the funding goes. The college is very unorganized and there is zero transparency. They will lie straight to your face in order to get your foot in the door. The inspirational core faculty students and opportunities to study abroad through teaching out universities are only things redeemable about this place otherwise find another program. You will have more resources support and actually earn a degree that will help you in the real world.

The instructors and the library workers made up the core of this school for me. I adored all my instructors, and greatly valued the one-on-one time I had with them to help my academic and general life learning. The administration was unimpressive. They spoke about themselves well but the admin frequently disappointed students. The school is very ableist overall. I came to this school as a transfer student. I did well as a transfer student, but know I would not have stayed if I'd started my bachelor's degree at this school. I was involved in some Title IX work at the school and was disappointed by the school's lack of action to help students seeking protection under Title IX. This school was moderately trans-friendly. It painfully lacked in diversity, but in some ways is very well-suited to neurodivergent students with non-traditional learning styles.
Great for people who want to create a unique degree plan. Must be extremely self motivated to pursue dream degree because teachers do not challenge you. You have to challenge yourself!
