  • This is a beautiful and tidy campus with an Ivy League vibe. If you're a visitor like us, you can walk around the campus and enjoy the scenery. There is also a free art gallery as soon as you enter the campus. We arrived by car and easily found street parking outside the main gate. Our visit lasted two hours.
  • Another top notch, reputable liberal arts college in the nation...
