The friendships you build here last a lifetime, the school has a very friendly "family" feeling. What I like most about the school is that as you get to know your professor on a personal level he/she really will look out for your well being in multiple ways.
I actually love my school. You have to learn to make you fun here at Hampton. The people I have met and interacted with have all been great. I have many memories here that I will never forget and met people who I will be friends with for the rest of my life.
