Athletics:

Extracurricular Opportunities:

1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?

Very clean dorms and it was great to have a bathroom in his personal dorm room. Good food options as well

Really good variety in the food. Quality food is also excellent.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Access to the beach

As a post grad there’s less social activity on campus than there is for the other kids but everybody was certainly very friendly and inclusive.
