    UMM REVIEW

    I chose this school because of the Community I saw when I toured. The affordability or ways I knew I could meet the cost, were also an important factor. I also strongly considered the distance from home.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think that the courses at this university are challenging but could be so much more challenging if professors or the university really wanted to push students to learn as much as possible and continue to grow academically.
