This college shows a lovely atmosphere surrounded by wonderful people no matter who you meet. If people have party lives, they will leave it out of others lives if they aren’t those kind of people. With the teachers and advisors, every single one makes sure to care for their students like it was a one on one course. The professors strive for greatness in every student and are very active in and out of campus life. The dedication of the students here are high as well, showing serious academic achievement and strivity.

The first thing I'll say is that the food is not good. The "international" section is pretty good sometimes, but everything else's quality is lower than general fast food. The rooms are pretty good on campus, but off campus most people just life at home. Most of the teachers are alright, some aren't that good though. Other than the school, which is on the main road, there are almost no big stores in the town. Also, there's only the main road to find anything.

Kim

Great place to learn.

Rhyanna

I love it here. I honestly would never go to another university, here feels like home and family. I'm learning so much everyday, my professors are wonderful, creative, and innovative. Everyone is open-minded and kind and I really enjoy my time here so far. I'm confident I'll be able to achieve my goal and dreams by completing my education here.

  6. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    My scholl was very hands on in my major (marine biology) with courses starting with the first semester. The other school I looked at did not offer these courses until junior or senior years. I took two field oriented classes first semester and have taken many others since then. It is possible for students to have internships or co-ops in their major after freshman year and some majors require it. The professors took an interest to get to know you right away and there was never the impression of becoming just a number.
