    I absolutely love this school. I am from southern California so it is a while from home. So, if you are the type of person who can not stay away from family and NEED your family, it is possible to go home but for me it was not realistic. This is a great school to learn more about yourself and getting involved. You definitely learn how to manage your time, with friends school work and going out to have fun. There is always an opportunity to do something and it is always up to you to do it.

    The friendly atmosphere and beautiful campus are my favorite parts about attending this school. Currently, I am living in the dorms and meeting new friends is very easy. Occasionally, there are movie nights and other events organized by residential advisers to bring people closer. Every weekend is when students party it up and live the college experience. Off-campus are tons of restaurants and entertainment in close proximity. The great thing is that public transportation is included in your tuition, so you can basically travel through the whole city!
