Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

I think the surrounding town takes a lot away from what incoming students expect from the college experience, which is not controllable. The school itself, however, could do a better job of stimulating students by spending more on concerts and events. The social life is not stimulating outside of athletics.
