    The campus is absolutely beautiful and the style of the buildings are almost Spanish looking. The weather is interesting, often fluctuating from foggy to blazing hot in the matter of an hour. Not all of the classrooms are up to date with technology and proper seating but the personal setting and overall friendly atmosphere make up for it.
