One of the advantages of a small campus is the close relationships a student can develop with both friends and faculty. Professors are approachable and invested in students’ success. The faculty and staff encourage students to lead programs, take on new initiatives, and engage in dialogue, even on tough topics. Whether you want to get involved in existing student organizations or start a new one, you’ll have the support you need as you help shape the events and culture of the campus.
Honestly, just living here is my favorite. Just meeting all kinds of different people and just hanging out with people that I never met before...I just love talking to people, love meeting people and that’s probably my favorite thing was just meeting all kinds of different people.
