    The atmosphere of the campus is such a tightly knit community it is near impossible not to form relationships that will last a life time. That is true of both peer relationships and with faculty members.

    I absolutely love the atmosphere of the mountains and the college. Everything is more laid-back and more enjoyable.

The professors also make it great because you begin to form a bond with them because you are actually a person here, not some kid in a room of 200.
