There’s nothing like actually visiting to get a feel for what a place is really like. Especially when it comes to choosing a “home away from home” for college.

"I do think that coming to Linfield was pretty much the best thing for me. It opened up so many different opportunities, ideas, friendships, and relationships that I wouldn’t have had before."
