It is a local school and nationally recognized. Gave a good amount of scholarship money and is a small private school that can cater to my needs. It also has a very nice campus and excellent faculty working there.
The course curriculum is thorough and not easy. I am studying biology and the science classes are challenging and require a lot of study time. Other majors like business have a slightly easier time with their curriculum.
I wanted to move somewhere warm, a good nursing program, free application fee on the common app. When I came to visit for a weekend I knew it was where I belonged and felt at home. I think if I had applied to other schools in Florida I might have made a different choice, but the application was impulsive.
I enjoy the classes I am taking through the required general education courses that can be boring. Required 0 credit labs take up valuable time in my schedule. My nursing courses are interesting and my professors are good for the most part.
