Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1973

Overall Rating

I liked the smaller campus life. It was also near home. I most liked the easy access to classes, when I lived in the dorms. The downtown area was a charming place to visit also. The dorm food was fine. I also lived off campus and liked it too.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2002

Overall Rating

The school served me well, as the pre-med program allowed me to go to medical school. However, the town was depressing, and the majority of students are from the general area. I played basketball, but football really runs the school and town. It served it's purpose.
