It's a small size, the feel of the community, and the chance to follow my planned course. I also had the chance to continue in my sport at a college level but not rely on it for money. They also gave me a large financial aid package.
It's decent, but there are significant prerequisites that you have to do. We have classes in every department for the college. Then, you have the prerequisites for our major. Exercise science requires a lot of math and science.
