Close to family. The class sizes are small enough for me to have a personal relationship with my professors. I am able to go to my professors one on one and obtain the help I need with my assignments.
I absolutely love the course curriculum. I think it gives students an opportunity to really dive into different subjects while still focusing on their own major. I was able to not only explore my major, but other subjects as well.
