  • I am a current student here

    I am not from the area and was looking for a little more of a city life. The Campus organizations such as CAPPA are awesome at putting together events and if you do make the most out of them you may very well enjoy yourself.

    I have a great group of friends. Within a week or so my floor had become really good friends and I had a blast with everyone. As for everyone on campus, they are friendly. Its not like high school at all. There are no clicks here, just friendly people.

    It's close to home, and the student community is pretty good. You can almost always find other people working on similar course work, so impromptu study groups are very common.
