As a person who grew up in a very diverse neighborhood, it was quite an adjustment to come to Ada, Ohio. However, the professors and the majority of the students I have met have made my decision worthwhile. Therefore, I feel as though almost anyone can come here, as long as you can adjust to a small town atmosphere and a relatively small school.
A dedicated person, who has strong academic skills and is independent enough to spend long periods of time on campus to really experience everything that the school has to offer. Also, the person should be outgoing and open to meeting new people and forming quick bonds with those people who will surround you at all times.
Conservative, white, upper-class students who are interested in studying 89% of their lives are the typical student that would fit in. But There should be more liberal, multi-cultural , artisitic, caring people.
