What Students are Saying

According to Money's Best Colleges Rankings:

"The Performance Learning environment allowed me to experience real world situations right away as a freshman. I was afforded so many different opportunities ranging from choir, to Greek life, to a student run theatre company."

"The varieties of styles of teaching courses are so different. Some professors lecture the whole time, others get involve with the students, and some do both. I like how the class size is not to overwhelmingly large or small, the professors know your name."

"I get to experience lots of one-on-one with my professors due to the exceptionally small class size. They make me feel comfortable to approach with questions."
