“All of the professors are so helpful and go above and beyond for their students. The small class sizes allow me the opportunity to get to know my professors well. Due to the small class size and the one-on-one attention that comes with it, I have been able to develop strong relationships with professors that have led me to receive an on-campus accounting position and a summer internship.
