            Austin College - opportunity for personal relationship with professors

            I enjoyed the smaller student body and the opportunity to create real relationships with your professors. You were always more than an assigned seat number or 179 on alphabetical class role. If you needed help it was always available. Great place to get a solid education and be a part of a diverse campus environment.
