    The atmosphere and the community offered. I wanted a place that would feel like a second home and help me grow and develop as an individual. This schools location was also ideal because it is located in downtown Holland.

    The corse curriculum is rigorous but rewarding. I have to try in my classes but the professors are extremely helpful and want to see their students succeed. The is a liberal arts school so the classes not towards my major are very interesting.
