What impressed you positively?

"Facilities are great, the anatomy lab was very well ventilated and modern. The school is fairly small and everyone knows everyone which is nice. The campus is beautiful, and I love Valhalla as one feels like they are in a 'forest' surrounded by trees. Campus seems safe and staff seems friendly. I like how the financial aid office seems informative and quite open to helping students. I also liked how the school gave interviwees a list of phone numbers of current students that are willing to answer questions about the school. I also like the continental breakfast and $7 coupen for lunch! that was very nice...." Report Response
