I was familiar with the campus, it was close to home, and being a smaller private school, the professors took time to knew me! Class sizes were small and the students felt like family. Professors checked in on me even after leaving their classes.
Textbooks are too expensive! More hands-on learning is needed. Public relations coursework was most helpful and relevant to the career I am in today. Many of the coursework was discussion based, which I liked.
