I like the location and beliefs of the school. I wanted to go to this university because I wanted to have a sense of community and a group of people around me who have similar beliefs to mine. I wanted to go out of state as well.
I enjoy the courses that I am taking for my English major in the school of humanities, but I think there should be more options when it comes to the core curriculum and classes that we are required to take.
