I loved this college. Small classes, and rural setting. It's beautiful. If you are a psychology major it has even more history as some of the buildings used to reside psychiatric patients. I had some amazing teachers, and some not so great teachers, but such is life anywhere you go. My overall experience was excellent!

This is a very small, close knit college. There are no sports or sororities or anything like that, so if that is what you are looking for, this school is not for you, But if you are looking for small classes, professors who actually love their job and a whole campus who is willing to help you out, this school is for you. I loved it!
