    I heard about this college from one of my indirect relatives whose son had done his masters from this college in the same domain. So he helped me alot in reaching the college. Another reason was that I want to pursue my graduation in Pennsylvania. Overall it was an incredible life experience for me.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum was designed in such a way that It covered almost every key point of my field. Product-based learning was the base of this curriculum. I found many changes within me at a professional level after completing this course.

    It is decent college in terms of living cost, quality education, and campus life style. I reached this university through social media network. I found this university good fit for my career dreams. My academic background during my high school was above average so I got approval from this college easily.

    My curriculum was unique and creative in terms of selective topics in my field. I never felt any kind of difficulty in any particular subject of my course, all because of the best teaching methods of my professors. For me, it was great.

    I liked the course at the first sight because machine learning and data science professionals are in demand in the world right now. Moreover, the placement statistics of the college are spell-bounding. I applied to the college online through the common application portal. There was no application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course covers the theories initially then the entire focus is on the application of the theory to practice in order to solve real-world problems. The main focuses are on Python, C++, and Tableau and mathematics and statistics are also dealt with in detail.

    My cousin studied in college so I decided to apply here as it is helpful to have a family in a new place. Also, I took a virtual tour of the campus and was widely impressed by the scenic beauty inside the campus. I decided to get a degree in MBA to better my career prospects. Also, I had to pay no application fee for online submission.

    Course Curriculum :

    The curriculum was very intensive and vast but the faculty members made it easy for us. The coursework made us well prepared for taking up jobs in various areas of business administration. I had to complete 36 credits to get the degree which involved studying 9 core subjects and 3 electives.

    Athletics program and physical therapy program. I greatly connected with the cross country coach and was excited to contribute to the running program. The PT program is growing tremendously and is well known in our area. After being accepted, I secured a spot into the full 6 years of the program without having to reapply. I also liked the location of the college. There is a cute college town with plenty of countrysides to adventure in.

    Course Curriculum :

    This is a liberal arts college, so I did have to take courses to fulfill general education requirements. These courses were beneficial in forming an inclusive campus environment and made me a well-rounded person. After 3 years of courses, I am now fully immersed in physical therapy courses and I am very excited about that.
