The small classroom size was the major deciding factor in determining Huron as the best fit for my post-secondary education, alongside the ability to build lasting relationships with my professors…I recall one of my French professors who took the time to get to know me and I was astounded by how much she dedicated to learning about each one of her students (we were 14 students). She even went on to recommend other classes I could take and books I could read based on my interests.
