If you want, there's fantastic opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom. Class sizes are small, allowing for lots of personal attention. There is also a large interational student population providing diverse prospectives on global politics and life in general.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say that you need to definitely research each school to the best of your abilities. When looking into a school look at all aspects not just academics, but the location of the school,the general tone of the student body and what there is to do on campus. Without knowing all these things you could end up at a school you are unhappy with. Not everything about school is the academics and prestige. The school will also be where you live, your home for the next four or more years and you need to be happy there and satistfied with the total college experience. To make the most of your college experience once you are at your school, you need to take full advantage of what the school offers to you. Join clubs or others activites in order to meet new people, and if your ever having trouble of any kind there is always help you just have to know how to look for it on campus.

What's unique about your campus?

Parties, Near the Beach. Easy School
