This school lays on the charm to getQuite BrightMusic Education
This school lays on the charm to get you reeled in, then shows it's real face when you've put too much time and money in to leave. They're in a financial mess and need any and all students they can get, but they mismanage funds, charging upwards of $300 a credit hour, requiring you to live on campus until you are about to graduate and making you jump through hoops to get approved to move off campus, and pay hefty fees for room, board, and a meal plan, yet can't seem to make ends meet. Some of the faculty genuinely care, an are amazing, those are the people that the school used to be, but in it's horrible spiral downwards with financial problems and uncertain futures of the programs, the faculty has become very unpleasant and it is not the school you get sucked into on your college visit and conversations. Some programs are blessed to have amazing faculty that balance it out, but most departments have that one on that doesn't care. This school has a tradition of being a caring, close knit community, but a mix of bad economy and getting the wrong kind of professors on our faculty that only care about themselves and making themselves look better have turned it into a place that a lot of students regret coming. It is not the school I began my education at, that is for sure. If you are looking for a Christian school that cares, look elsewhere, at least until their money problems settle. I'm hoping once they get their financial mess under control, the school will again return to the place my friends and I loved so much.

There are a lot of great things aboutBrightArt & Design Department
There are a lot of great things about this college. Its small size means that professors have the ability to take an interest in you personally. This can be a good and bad thing. If you are the type of person who likes to only show up to class when there is a test, you will most likely experience problems here. However, if you are someone who is very involved and asks a lot of questions that require 1 on 1 assistance it's perfect. I've never had any class with more than 35 people, most of them only have 10-15 students. With so few people, the school becomes a community. But people who need alone time beware, it's a residential campus. This means you'll be surrounded by people 24/7 in dorms that were built in the 70s.

This is a veryAverageBiology
This is a very small town college and not a whole lot to do. I think that the college does a good job with the students in the classroom but the suck in the social department.
