Since it is a small campus in terms of the primary campus. The teachers and students have more communication. Councils and professors themselves have more flexibility so there are more availability for one on one and mentors.

The culture was built on integrity and Christian values. Not perfect, but the effort to make this a very honest and friendly atmosphere was evident. A laid back atmosphere as well (located on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean).

During my reign the facilities for the library and newer halls were great. The primary Mathematics and Computer Science dept had their own personal lab. Currently they have way better facilities and new labs have opened up since then. Dining hall was great and a good few overlooking the sea since the school is next to a Beach community.
