Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Overall Rating:

I transferred to Elms from HCC and was pleasantly surprised by my experience there. I loved that the campus was small and I loved that because of that, each student got more one on one help. The dining hall is beautiful and new, the library is comfortable and the people there are helpful, and the professors are all amazing at what they do. I wish I could have stayed there to continue my education!
