    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    INSIDERS PERSPECTIVE

    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.


    Course Curriculum - 

    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.
