"My favorite thing about Geneva is the relationship between professors and students. It is not uncommon for professors to come into the dining hall and just sit down with a group of their students and share a meal with them. Professors know students by name, and, in my experience, genuinely care about their personal lives as well as their academic lives."

"My professors are definitely my favorite part of my program (just the SOC ones, they’re the best!)."
