Detailed Ratings

Overall is this college is grand. What I enjoy most about this college is that this college has horses, stables, and a program that allows that students to care for the horses. Also students are allowed to bring their own horses to the school and work with them in class. My most memorable experience was painting the green house as part of my work study program. The best tip that I have for prospective students is to be a good student and be respectful of your teachers.
