STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

SNU!

I decided to look at this college because it was a Nazarene school and the perfect distance away from my hometown in Kansas. I ended up choosing the school for the program I was in and for the equestrian team. I stayed because it was a well-rounded school with great people to help me on that path.


Course Curriculum - 

It was above the standard requirement and very helpful to get a career started after graduation. The course curriculum had to be like this because of being an accredited program but it was made awesome by the professors running it.
