2 Student Testimonials



Freshman · Performing Art

Every professor I’ve had has taken the time to learn their students names and genuinely hopes to see us succeed.The clubs and student organizations are so prevalent on campus. There is a club for just about everything. The Greek Life community in campus, while not as big as other schools, is such a tight knit community full of endless love and support.



Freshman · Communication and Media Studies

I like my housing community, it is very welcoming. And I am not a partier so it is easy to stay away from those since they aren’t on campus. I love my involvement in the radio station on campus, it’s a lot of fun and everyone is really nice. The clubs are endless so there’s something for everyone.
