* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I loved all my classes. They all pushed me to be a better student while creating an environment that was both fun and challenging. I got the opportunity to take a London Theatre Studies course, that I could only take here, and it pushed me to get out into London and explore and see all this wonderful theatre!
