The school is pretty small and the campus is easy to access, quality of infrastructures is really nice and the campus life is a must have. Lot of activities and staff really involved to give you the best college experience, a perfect mix between quality and enjoyement.

Nevertheless there are not many professors and it lowers the quality of educatuion vecause some of them are not the best ever. Having more professors would help to reach the next level.

I believe more life experience classes would be beneficial. Not just semester-long either. Topics such as Taxes; how to balance a checkbook; (investing-although there is a class on that - I think it should be expanded) completing resumes; job interviews; scholarships (they do SOME) but could certainly have a more dedicated time for this. I think it should be required (not just an elective) - to have cooking; powder puff automotive (for girls;) life class that teaches how to take care of children; keep a household going. Some people aren't taught that. While all these fancy math classes benefit VERY LITTLE - more REGULAR math - would be better.
I loved the place, great friendly neighborhood, great stores, just a wonderful place to be. The people are also very friendly as well because it is a smaller town therefore you get to know people easier because you get to interact with them more often than you would in a larger, higher populated city or cities.
