We do a lot of hands on projects, where we integrate what we are learning in the classroom into a project in the community. I love the opportunity of getting to work with organizations in my field of study. I am very confident I will find a job post graduation or at least have a quality enough resume to get into graduate school.

Our gen ed classes have 20-25 students. Depending on your major there are class sizes of 5-6 students. The small class sizes holds the student and the professors more accountable. It also assures we can slow down or speed up the course depending on the students needs.

Staff and faculty will go out their way for you. The don't treat you like just another student paying their paycheck, in no time you become family. The faculty goes out of their way to make it to sporting events, musical concerts,and theater performance.
