Both of my children went here and enjoyed their college years. They have some great staff employed in the campus offices. a little pricey- but most private colleges are. The new building for PT and OT is amazing.

We were on a college visit for my son and I have to say what a wonderful school. The staff and students were incredibly friendly and welcoming.

Plenty of new construction has taken place over the last few years making things beautiful in the "college" part of town. The Rose Garden is a great spot in the summer if you're looking for some peace & quiet to read a book. But travel in to downtown if you're looking for the hustle & bustle.

Earned my masters degree at the U of S. I enjoyed it in 1998 and the campus since then is absolutely incredible.

Perfect size campus. Not to big or small. It's quiet but has a life and the city is one block down the hill. It seems like it's always expanding. Great walking areas. Cool open space and all of my classes are a quick walk from my dorm. Living in Condron is almost like being in a hotel. The food at... More
