    I think it's a great small University, actually it's not too small not too big and has a lot of different subjects to study that in many universities you can't do. Even though it's small you will still find students from different countries which is great and recently it just celebrated its 50th international night.

    If you are living on campus, I think you are pretty much covered. There are shuttles to the store, meals at the dining hall, academic help and free tutoring and living in residence is a great way to meet people from all over! I can’t speak for off campus living as I have yet to do that! All of the international staff is very accommodating and kind. Making it very known that we can go to them for anything.

    There is no transportation around the University, so I'm always in the University and get bored sometimes. But it is definitely good for study.

    The University of Findlay is great! The campus is not very big which makes it easier to get to know friends and to get a closer connection as well as a lot of help from your professors. If you are looking for things to do, there are plenty of clubs and associations to join as well as many opportunities for excercising.
