I think college would be a great college for prospective students who are interested in science. Not that this is all the school has to offer but I think it is especially great for this major in this area. I visited this school and I got a feeling of family and love. I did apply to this school. I applied because I am very interested and I would love to go here. I recently found out that I will be living on campus this summer to be a part of their summer science program. I am so excited! This really does seem like a great school. I encourage everyone to consider it!
