Beautiful campus lined with palm trees. Small campus, but not tiny. plenty of amenities. The century old rose garden is a must to be seen.

Very nice campus. Small as you would expect of a private college. The landscaping is kept up beautifully.

The campus looks like a 5-star resort. The library has a ton of cozy spaces to study that look over the campus. The campus grounds are maintained extremely well, everything is very clean and well kept.
