"There’s such a creative atmosphere here, where you don’t feel intimidated asking for help or going above and beyond in doing research or studying. Doors are always open here. And professors will spend two or three hours working with you...And I’m not hobbled by student loan debt like many of my friends who go to bigger universities."
