I love the 96% placement rate after graduation and how much the professors and all faculty care for every one of the students. I also love the campus and its beauty. The president has such an impact on every student and teaches a class for freshmen which is not popular for any other college. It just sets it apart so much.
It differs on majors but it is set up very well. We can choose if we want a minor and what track we decide to take. Since I am on health and wellness I have exercise science classes and health-centered classes. But it is all set out on what classes to take each year.
