  • I am a current student here

    The school is good for academics, but has a ton of opportunities for fun as well. Plenty of Division 1 sporting events to attend through out the year and there are also plays and musicals all the time. There are clubs and many events put on for freshmen to help them get through their first year.

  • I am a current student here

    I was so nervous when I first came here not knowing anyone and being so far from home. Everyone here was so nice, however, and I quickly made friends and became acclimated to the new situation. The Resident Assistants are here to hep you with anything you need, and teachers and counselors are always available to give advice too. The fitness center is wonderful and free to anyone who takes advantage of it. The food here is great (though it can sometimes be a little pricey), and there are many eateries to choose from. The campus has a great layout as a mixture of foliage, trees, and modern buildings.
