Overall Rating

i attended Southwestern for it's small class size and liberal arts focus. The smaller classes were the best in that I got to know my classmates as well as professors. I enjoyed not feeling like one amongst tens of thousands. The attention professors are able to provide to their students made this the best situation for my learning style.
