    I like the variety of the student body. I've met people of all ages and backgrounds. Working people, stay at home moms, people my own age in similar boats, people trying to get ahead in their careers, etc etc etc. It truly is a melting pot and I love it.

    Everyone gets along and the food is great. There are sofas for your comfort in lobby's and quiet places where you are able to study on your own time.

    I enjoy talking to the teachers, participating in class, and engaging in art critiques. Past that it is not a very enjoyable experience. Do not come here expecting to make many friends. Thankfully there were some highschool friends I could hang out with. However, if you don't have any friends you already know who go to the school expect to feel lonely. It felt as though the friendships were already made and everyone only cared about getting their schoolwork done, not making new connections.
