I chose this school because it is a small, liberal arts school so I knew that I would be focused on as an individual. I also chose the school-based off of athletics. I run on the track team here so it was important to me that the team and training fit my needs.
I think the course curriculum is good. We are required to take a variety of courses here in order to fulfil graduation requirements. While it may not always be classed we want to take, I think that the liberal arts core make us well-rounded.
I really liked the atmosphere of the school and the location. I had heard a lot of good things about the school, and their percentage of jobs after graduation was very high. They also offered my major and have a good communications department.
I like it because I have the opportunity to learn a lot about different topics in classes that I normally wouldn?t take. My school offers a lot of interesting classes for my major as well as electives that I have to take.
