    There are a lot of friendly people on campus, Many of these people are willing to help or welcome you in any way they can. Housing frequently provides themed activities and get-togethers that are a great way to meet people and make friends. The food is good, and there is plenty of variety. The atmosphere at the most popular places, like the Commons, Student Center, and Halle Library is welcoming and fun. Campus is the perfect size, easy to navigate, and no walk is too far.

    It truly is my new home after high school. The campus is small but with a lot of students. I have never walked across campus without running into someone that I know and enjoy talking to. At the same time however, there are so many students that you always get the opportunity to make new friends.
