I liked the environment, it felt like a family. Coming from Faith, a small school, and then going to another small school it’s just a nice transition. I’m really looking forward to it.” Said Boehm, “I wanted to stay close to home for one year, get comfortable with college, get good grades, so I can move off and do bigger and better things.” Said Chapa, “I looked into their academics and everything and I actually liked how it is.
