“A Jewel of a School”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you're looking for a small (4,000 undergraduates) established college in a gorgeous setting, this is the school for you. It's high academic requirements coupled with a low student to professor ratio should insure a great liberal arts education. It's very costly, but you certainly get your money's worth!

“College visit with HS senior”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is a beautiful campus and seems to be growing with a huge new building opening this fall and other construction thoroughout. The location is next to the historic district for additional off-campus dining and activities. The student tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable along with the Admssions office staff who conducted the presentation. It is a little out of the way but really gives a good campus feeling.
