Detailed Ratings

The school is a smaller school atmosphere, to which it would fit my needs better. I really liked the campus and the room sizes. Everyone seems to be really friendly and helpful. I like the small town feel. I like the feel of the town, lot of restaurants and night life. I like the stadium at the school love to go to games. I really couldn't. give any tips yet since I have not gone there yet.
