It is an outstanding University and I feel honored to be able to attend and be a student at the University. The professors are helpful to guide you without doing your coursework for you and very friendly not leaving a professional behavior at any time. All I can say is that the education is of premium quality to go along with the value of the degree.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    As student and mom, I would advice all the youth and my daughters, to stop the crazy thoughs just once and think about their future and which career they want to follow. Then they should start taking some courses while they are in the school, so that they can transfer those credits, for the ones required in the University, if it is their goal. Other very important part, as a mother, I would advise others to include in their child's lifes, activities into groups such: scoutts, sports, etc ; in order to get scholarships within their previous years with activities that would help to afford what they want . I think that with this behaviour, their lives in the university won't create big headaches for their parents.
