    Although I would have rather been at a University like I had initially planned I like the schools atmosphere. They welcome you into the school and it is easy to get around. Not to mention all the money I'm saving.

There's a lot to do, a lot of clubs to join, and a lot of people to meet, plus plenty of events are happening each day if you really look around.
