THOUGHTS ON ELMS COLLEGE

It had my desired degree and the school location was perfect for me. I felt like I was able to further my degree here that I didn't feel like I could do at my other schools. The teachers here are also amazing and I couldn't ask for anyone better.


Course Curriculum - 

It's perfect in my opinion! It doesn't require you to take unnecessary classes for your major(s) which some colleges do in my opinion. Everyone has room to succeed and I wish I could get my degree from this school.
