I think that each professor ive had cares about their students except that a lot of them believe that only their class work is important. ive had meetings with professors where they have made it clear that they believe that their work is the most important.

though there isnt much to do in the town, there is a lot of time to get to know each other and become very close and travel together. i love the family vibe with everyone.
