The Center for Work and Service is a great resource for students and allows students to have personalized premed advisers. The alumni network is extremely strong and their are many opportunities for research on campus.

The classes are extremely engaging and there are a wide variety of classes to choose from. The professors know what they are doing and seem to want to help every student. Class sizes are small, so all students have equal opportunities.
