    I love the school and the housing is great (they have student apartments. My only complaint is that there is not much for students to do in the city of Wilmington.

    Being that it is a small school, it allows students, faculty, and staff to become one giant family. Even though you are on your own for the most part, everyone looks out for one another and the staff is always available and understanding. Wilmington is also an interesting place in itself. Every first weekend of the month, there is art loop on the market street block. There is plenty of art, free food, and entertainment during these days. In addition, living in an apartment style dormitory was a thousand times better than the jail cell-like dorms at most universities.
