          • 2007-2011, Bachelor of Science, Biology

            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.

          • 1970-1974, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), English Language and Literature, General

            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.

          • 1968-1972, BA, Psychology

            Great school! The best 4 years in a row I've ever had!
