It is a small school so it's nice to be able to know mostly everyone. The downside to this is that it can be cliquey and it may seem like everyone knows your business. The campus itself is small (less walking, ideal in winter!) and very pretty. Class size is small, usually that of a high school class, so you definitely can get that personalized attention. Downside to this is participation counts, so skipping class can severely affect your grade. Cafeteria food is good.

Overall a great school, great opportunities regardless of the field you pursue. I will say that they have a stellar Education program, however.
