            Great School I felt undeniably prepared for the challenges of graduate school and even more now as a working professional. The outstanding liberal arts curriculum and small classroom sizes are two of the college's best features, and I cannot say enough about the dedication of the professors. I promise that you will leave the college fully prepared to be a successful man in all aspects of life.

            An early decision that was the right decision. A quiet center of learning in rural central Virginia, where I acquired an excellent liberal arts education foundation, which has stood me in good stead through the years, while engaging in sports (rugby), community/campus, and social activities for four marvelous years in the early '70's.
