Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    On top of the campus being beautiful there is always something going on. Someone is always handing out free stuff and the school hosts many events that keep the campus active and fun. All of the students are extremely nice and helpful to freshman which definitely gives a great learning environment. What I loved best was that the campus hired massage therapists, relaxation dogs, and gave out free breakfast in the few days before finals. I can not imagine a school that cares so much about your personal success.
