I wanted to be able to play softball, do research and get my pre-med degree, which was hard to find in one package. I love this school. I can do anything here. I’m able to be a part of multiple organizations and not feel overwhelmed, and part of that is because of the support of the faculty here. They are very understanding of time and commitments and help make everything very doable.

When I first stepped foot on the UHSP campus for a tour, I immediately fell in love. Even though it is a small school, the faculty and students are all hardworking and kind, and I was attracted to the opportunities that the University offers to students.
