  • The dorm life is great for those who live in the apartments close around, it provides great care for the students as well as a small hospital next to us…

    In the student center they always have food that you can purchase for breakfast or lunch, and if you can't find something you like there are a lot of restaurants nearby.

    The food is expensive to eat everyday and about twice. That's why I bring lunch from home.

    There is a small cafeteria. The cafeteria does not have a lot of hours of business. The cafeteria serves mostly things like snacks, drinks, and fast food.

    The food is amazing. The people who work in the kitchen are extremely friendly. So try to make friends with the cooks and servers because they really know how to hook you up when it comes to serving you alot of food.
