As someone who actually went to 3 different Universities, this one was my favorite by far. People are very laid back and non-judgmental. The professors are not pressured to research, so that they can focus on the students. The city of San Marcos is beautiful, a river runs through the campus. Although some think of it as a party school, really every school can be a party school, I did not see much of a difference in the Christian college and this public school I attended.
