The class sizes are great! Compared to other school who have about 50+ students in one class. Our class sizes are at most 12 students. Encouraging students to talk to the professor one on one. The class participation is great as well.
The faculties and advisers seem personable and knowledgeable. I'll be in the Master's program for Religious Studies with concentration in Buddhism, which is a core and uniquely strong program for this university.
