Great programs and professors! Small community makes it feel like home. Tons of student activities that will keep you busy and they're a great way to meet new people.
There's Chick-fil-A in the student center, you
can't beat that. The gym is renovated and awesome! It's worth the time to tour the campus. It is beautiful. The advisors are also very knowledgeable and will help you meet your goals. They watch out for you even when you think they're not 😁 My only complaint is parking... Make sure you have some comfortable tennis shoes for all of the walking. They're is help everywhere for you, this school really want you to achieve!

My overall experience with the school was pretty good, although I'm not going to actually be enrolled in the school until the fall of 2020, I found my college visit to be very informative and interesting. One thing I found interesting about this college is that they give you $1000 dollars for graduating on time!
It's cheaper than other colleges and it's a small campus so it's easier to get around! They are very admin about helping you succeed. They are several resources, from career services, to touring, to academic advising. They will help and anyway they can to help you graduate and succeed in the world.
