Best college that covers everything necessary for the students. Professor and staff are really helpful all the time. Classes are well tailored so that students can have enough space for other activities going on campus. Campus housing provides all the amenities and are at a walkable distance to the classes. Over all, best experience at best price!!!

This is a beautiful campus that offers many different opportunities. I picked to go to this college because the people are very nice and the professors that I have are respectful and are eager to teach us. The food selection could be better because we only have Subway and Chick-fil-a

Jessica

My overall opinion is that the university is a great place if students are looking for an affordable place with affordable tuition. The environment is so beautiful and gives a really peaceful vibe to the entire campus. I especially love that there's a walkway between two lakes. The teachers all seem very knowledgeable about what they are teaching, and are very helpful in my learning process, making themselves as available as possible. While I don't usually want to be a part of organizations, the university has a variety of groups to participate in.
