I chose a small school for my graduate studies to have a more personable experience within my program and that is exactly what I am getting. CLU has that small school feel and yet offers a lot to its students. I had the chance to go to Cal Poly for the MPP program but decided ultimately on CLU for the MPPA program. The faculty are dedicated and want to see you to be successful within the program and be able to apply what you learn outsided the classroom. You are not bogged down in a bunch of theoretical knowledge that you wont know what to do with once you earn your degree. I have been very content and happy with CLU and the MPPA program. Too many times people attend a school for the name rather than looking at other institutions (that may not be as reputable) that could yield more opportunities to you if you are a motivated student. I have been given ample opporutnities throught CLU as a graduate student that I would not receieve at a larger institution like a Cal Poly. To name a few I have been chosen for two different graduate assistantships, appointed to the graduate student council, and all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA.
