Alumni & Student Reviews

A- Excellent
Career Preparation

What letter grade would you give your school on how well it prepares students for a career in the real world?

4 Based on 4 Reviews
  • Alumni
    B.A. Studio Art, Class of 2000

    Internships, career services (trains seniors on interviewing, finding jobs, announces jobs, etc), recruitment center (companies come to display jobs, discuss opportunities), writing center (resume writing assistance, etc), art show opportunities, (senior show, satellite campuses for art Ed), probably more since I graduated

    Human Development and Family Sciences, Class of 2005

    I did not feel prepared for a career from my college studies. I didn't have any practical knowledge of office culture and basic tasks. However, as a Christian, it did help me to critically think through how to handle life in the "real world" in context of my faith and beliefs.

Students and Culture

What letter grade would you give the students/culture at your school?

3.75 Based on 4 Reviews
  • Alumni
    B.A. Studio Art, Class of 2000

    Diverse, safe, low prof/student ratio, one-on-one connections with profs, profs supportive, high expectations, profs professionals and active in professional careers (true art shows, illustrators, psychiatrists, dietitians, nurses, etc).

    Human Development and Family Sciences, Class of 2005

    I don't know what it's like now - it's been a long time since I was there. The students were rather exclusively clique-ish.

Facilities

What letter grade would you give the facilities at your school.

4 Based on 4 Reviews
  • Alumni
    B.A. Studio Art, Class of 2000

    Updated dorms in nice condition, new buildings with latest technology, new student cafe and student union building, library good for school size, a lot has changed since I was there. My memory/perception is facilities were not as current as they are now. The then grade is B. Now is A.

    The facilities were great! New or renovated structures everywhere.

    good quality, improving, slightly dated

What overall letter grade would you give the activities/groups at your school?

4 Based on 4 Reviews

    B.A. Studio Art, Class of 2000

    It's been a while...I remember the student magazines: the bridge, the falcon express, the agape center, community service day, theater, music concerts, mission trips
