We just got back from doing a round of college tours. The staff at this university were very friendly and knowledgeable. With this tour we saw the whole campus including a dorm room. Definitely a small school with about 2,000 undergrad students. Beautiful campus
Attended Bearcat Days with my son. Campus is beautiful. Staff and students are very friendly. Panelists at Q n A had just excellent answers to every question asked. This would be an excellent choice of college.
