Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really liked the small class sizes. I was able to make bonds with teachers that have now had a major impact on my academic career. As far as improvements go, I think they need to take into consideration students of a middle income level. Sometimes its hard to accommodate attending such a prestigious university.
