Beautiful Campus

The campus is beautiful and historic. There are many places to eat and great views of the river from several vantage points. But lots of hills so wear comfortable shoes!

we visited the campus for my son. the two gentlemen at the desk services were very kind, polite, helpful and answered everything we asked them. the campus is beautiful, clean, and well maintained. we only felt that the advisor at the Veterans office could have been more helpful. other then that was a great experience.
