"I chose BSC because I liked the small campus atmosphere and family feel. I also really liked that it's a liberal arts school, because I am very interested in arts. The D3 sports program puts equal emphasis on our academic successes, and that really appealed to me as well because education is the ultimate reason I attend such a great school."
