    The relatively low price (compared to other schools) really doesn't reflect how great some of the professors are. I have learned so much from my classes here.

    The libraries are great! They have 3 levels (floors), and each has its own unique quality. One will have more books to check out, and the others will have a studying and computer center for upcoming exams, or for times to relax. Such as having a lounge near the research area to have some quiet time before a next class.

    You can save money by going here but you won't be challenged as well. You'll just be getting by. Once University hits, you will feel thoroughly unprepared if you get too comfortable with PBSC.

    The classes are not that expensive if you are an in-state student.
