Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I was on student government at the school so I was more involved with the other students and activities. If I wasn't doing that then I wouldn't have been so busy and involved. All I can say is get involved and try to attend things because the campus is so small that in order to really get the most out of it you have to get more involved.


Overall Rating

I really like that they have a study abroad program after someone has attended for one year.
