  • I am a current student here

    Sometimes it's difficult being away from home and all my friends, but I have made some great friends here. Many of the professors really care about you as a person and get to know you personally. Everyone is very friendly and helpful; it is a great enviroment and campus.

  • I am a past student here

    I remember more positives from a year working at a McDonald's than a year studying here. The campus is a nice place at first, but it feels cramped after a while, and that is if you are on good terms with the staff, which is a harder prospect than it sounds. The student body itself can be rather pitiless to perceived outsiders. I developed depression here. I still have bad dreams about this place, not exaggerating in the slightest.
