I opted for this particular university because they gave me a good scholarship and because I have more oportunities of academic growth. I also liked the small campus and how this makes students more involved of the campus activities. Profesora get to know you in a more personal level and actually have time outside of class to help you and make sure you are doing good in your classes.
It is tough but some professors want you to do well and offer help outside of class
Because of its family vibe and small community. The teachers know the students by their name and they are not just a number. It is a safe school and offers a great variety of programs. I really wanted to concentrate in international business and human resources but couldn't decide which one, so here I was able to take two.
The curriculum is very well structured and is built so that the courses work up in hardness. They are well structured so that the students learn from the different modules. The modules are very easy to follow and great.
Because it is a small school, so there are fewer students, and to experience to live in residence and to be more autonomous (on my own), and to have a new experience. I also went to a conference prior to choosing which university I would go to, and it seems a really good school with great teachers and a good community.
I think it is great! There are many different programs at the school, and within my own program I can take free electives which are courses not necessarily related to my program, and I have options to chose within my program courses which are great.
