  • Great university. Very small. Good student to faculty ratio. They have all of the student help that larger universities offer (tutors, health center, class study groups, counseling center, etc). Went all four of my years here.
  • Very happy with your list of banned words for 2016... especially SO!... I wished you had included... "reached out" or "reaching out"
  • Definitely wouldn't recommend this place. Unprofessional and ineffective professors seem to be the norm. But, those unprofessional professors will scold you for being unprofessional yourself, because apparently trying to have any amount of fun in college (or just generally acting like a normal human being) is unprofessional. Showing up 5-10 minutes late to every class they teach, complaining about how they don't have enough time to get through the lecture material, running class 15 minutes over the limit, setting up improper schedules then getting mad at students who have a scheduling conflict in reality but not in the registrar's system, and (on occasion) wearing seemingly the same clothes for a week straight, however, are all some of the wonderful and totally professional examples they set.
  • Nice university with friendly students. Very involved in their community.
  • I'm currently attending, it's my freshman year, and the faculty are so nice and so helpful and everything is so organized and fun. I love this university so far!!!
