I have friends who teach here part time and love their jobs. I work with veterans and many say the university is great for them. The University has a great band and the campus is very attractive. The university provides education for all races and all religions.

The museum on campus has a number of great treasures in its possession. It was nice to see some of Jacobs Lawrence's early work.

The Setting for the Wedding could not have been any better than what we experienced. The Student Center was simply beautiful and a great venue to have a reception. My... More

Worth a few of this historic campus and emancipation oak. A perfect home by the sea for students and faculty. A lovely spot with a well curated art museum that is worth a visit.
