Overall Rating:

Amazing school that made me much of who I am today. With small class sizes and caring, passionate professors you really can't beat it. The Triad program emphasizes the importance of work and community service along with academics. I owe their International Programs for making me a better human being and changing my worldview. It's a very unique school and will hopefully always stay that way.
