What Recent Grads Say See All 12 Comments >

It is a small program with a real Midwestern/plains feel. I have seen many of the same students in a variety of classes and many of the instructors know students by name, even a year after having class with them. The program is intimate enough to connect on a personal level with students but large enough to be very diverse and attract high caliber students and faculty
