Student Reviews

Small university with many opportunities
Rachel Brockamp rated 5 out of 5 stars

It was a small University that allowed a lot of direct communication between classmates and professors. There were many opportunities for research, study abroad, and internships associated with the University. I was able to take advantage of many of these opportunities and received an excellent education here.
