Known for

Safe campus
Beautiful campus
Diverse and Inclusive
Accessible and helpful professors



I started my first semester way back in 2016. I had a lot of anxiety, but there were advisors that helped me a lot. They also helped me figure out my financial aid. Due to family circumstances I had to leave school, but now i have applied and will begin school in August. I would 10/10 recommend this school to everyone.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Maybe parking, but since I've left it seems that they have added a lot of parking lots

There are a few professors that really stand out. One of my business teachers is a Career Coach, and if you don't know what you want to do yet, I would recommend taking Professor Athanasios's Business Administration class. My German professor was phenomenal, but some of the other professors are Nicht zu gut. Their campus is clean. They have a nice gym. However, I don't recommend moving here for their dorms (there are none).

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is not much interaction between students.



I liked the people that I met on campus and the professors that taught my classes. The workload can be difficult at times, so it is important to stay on top of studying. The campus is very beautiful and there are a lot of clubs and groups that you can join to make new friends!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Registration can be a little confusing so it is important to make sure you read all of the information very carefully. I had some issues with my academic advisors messing up my classes during my first semester so make sure that you double-check that everything is correct before the add/drop period ends.

The community of the students is really nice and the location of the college is in the mountains and it is very peaceful.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The Dining Hall is absolutely disgusting, they only make semi-good meals when student tours are going on.

Hunter Cavanaugh
Disc Golf



I loved being in the mountains and being able to look out any window and see the mountains in every direction. Classes are not really easy but I have loved all my classes and all my professors and the facility in which my classes were held.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I did not mind the small-town aspect of it but at times it would get boring and I would have to drive 30 minutes for entertainment.

Ana Osorio

Dog Training



My biology professor was amazing. He was very passionate about his teaching. Everyone on campus was very friendly. My advisor has been super helpful and always to help with any questions.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining hall is small but the campus overall is big and beautiful.
