It was a small campus, so it seemed like I knew everyone. I found it easy to be involved as much, or as little, as you wanted and everyone on campus was really nice.

Business Administration; Concentrations in Marketing & Management, Class of 2007

When I attended the school, everything was pretty old in terms of the infrastructure. Since I've graduated, the school has put forth a large effort to overhaul and rebuild a lot of the facilities (dorms, dining hall, labs etc.).

Activities and Groups
What overall letter grade would you give the activities/groups at your school?
Based on 2 Reviews
Alumni

I would say the most popular activities were intramural sports and dance club. The sorority/fraternity life was also big on campus, even though it was not something I was involved with.
