Great institution located in a beautiful college town. Its a school that is small enough to care, big enough to matter.
The school has many resources for students to take advantage of such as the career center that helps current student and alumni alike. There are more than 150 student led organizations so that students can always be involved and feel at home. Outside of campus, there are many quaint shops and cafes that provide a fun time for students.
Overall, belonging to the Vandal family is an experience... Read More
