1. This school was a great place to receive individualized attention from your teachers while exploring who you are and what you should be studying. It was a very close knit campus with a very active Greek life and a plethora of activities to do. Additionally, the school is small which means it only takes 15 minutes to get from one class to another. 2.Reasonable class sizes made for good learning environment, buildings and housing within close walking proximity, skilled and professional staff. City is not very safe but rarely needed to go off campus
