It has only been one semester and our daughter has been transformed from a hesitant, unassured teenager to a confident, believing, and determined woman in more ways than one. I couldn't be happier with our choice as a family to attend this university. She has developed a love for the outdoors through the crux program, and is now becoming a leader for them. As a Catholic family we are happy that Mass is so available and that our daughter has continued to grow in her faith. The school strives very hard to develop leadership skills throughout the student body in the hopes of transferring these skills to a successful job hunt post graduation. As a liberal arts university they do offer a broad range of majors but could be stronger in the STEM majors that are offered.
