I love the atmosphere of the school and how easy they've made it for me to meet new people. It's a great school for my major, and the location is another bonus for my major. I've had a lot of new experiences that never could've happened if I went anywhere else. I love the faculty as well.

My overall experience at the institution that I attend has been a pleasant one. Throughout my fall semester , I was able to quickly make friends and discover a lot of unknown resources that could potentially help me in the near future. I would definitely choose the same college again because I couldn't see what more another school could offer me that the one I'm at hasn't offered me already.
