“The variety of classes and the knowledge that each different professor brings to each class is something I believe would be hard to find at any other place. The atmosphere is wonderful and each professor truly gets to know their students and helps them in any way they possibly can.” - Caelyn Orlandi ‘17, assistant women's basketball coach
