Toured the university this spring with 2 friendly guides and was impressed by the up-to-date classrooms, including new library, science building, and large new theater building (to open fall 2017). Great art complex with museums and studios open to students 24/7.

Small college. Too small for us though. Nice town for a college though. Feels safe and friendly for the students.

My daughter was recently accepted into a resident writing program this summer and we had an opportunity to meet some staff and tour the facility. I'm very impressed with the academic "vibe" and my daughter noticed it right away.
