Great for a student that is extremely self-motivated & wants access to resources. Due to the size of the school and location, we have TONS of resources across majors, years, interests etc. On the downside, no one is going to bring the opportunities to you, you must go to them yourself.

A student dedicated to achieving their degree and any other personal goals they may have. A student who, while they are attentive to their classes, knows how to relax and enjoy their time in college.
