  • I liked how welcoming the campus felt to me. I wanted a smaller school that was close enough to home but still far enough where I could be independent. I liked how they knew everyone’s name and treated you like a person rather than just a number.

  • What motivated me to enroll was the flexible schedule the university was offering. When I tried out their eight-week courses, I loved them. The classes didn’t waste time, and the instructors were super supportive. I felt like the environment was more work-oriented with students who had careers already and were going back to school.
