  • 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.

  • Supports my old charter school
  • Very happy with your list of banned words for 2016... especially SO!... I wished you had included... "reached out" or "reaching out"
