I really enjoy the small campus. I like it that way because it is very personable. Figuratively, everyone knows everyone, and if you don't know someone, you soon will. I enjoy most of the teachers and having that personable contact. One specifically, Kathy Steffen, inspired me to be a great student, and pursue my communication dreams. At Ridgewater in Hutchinson, I would add more picnic tables. There are only two and both in inconvenient spots.

Ridgewater is a great school, and extremely affordable. Personally, it is not the school I would want to graduate from, but it is good for getting my generals out of the way. The professors are mostly great, and the academics are usually easy to follow.
So far, Ridgewater College is great. Extremely welcoming, diverse, great location, and helpful staff. Everyone from financial aid, admissions and teachers are willing to go above and beyond.
