  • Beautiful campus and excellent people working for this University. Smallest makes it that much better when providing excellent educational experience. Check it out!
  • Liberal Left wing ran university, parents should not let their kids even speak it's name or attend such a horrible educational institution unless you want your kids to be brainwashed! All federal and state funding should be stopped especially any tax payers money that are used for colleges like this one.!
  • Great School. College Classes. Activities. Great Education. 4 years of Life Training.
  • 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.
  • I love the school! My husband went there!
