    It is exciting to be on a campus while I am still in high school. I enjoy the freedom that you do not have in a K-12 school.

    I live on campus and it is very convinient. I enjoy being able to just wake up and walk to class, because the dorm locations are ideal. It was very easy to choose a dorm close to where I knew I'd spend most of my time. Classes are enjoyable as well, even those that I worried I wouldn't enjoy. Of course the food must be mentioned too. At first it was difficult getting used to how the meal plans worked, but now it is very simple and convenient. There are locations to use meal swipes across campus with many different options which is nice because at anytime you want you can switch up what your eating. In general everyone here is kind as well. I haven't ran into rude people, it is a really nice environment to be in. Overall I really do enjoy being here
