    Decent considering a ok amount of variety in classes and teachers. They have night/evening/ online/ hybrid/ shorter time period classes as well so there are options for just about everyone.

    There are alot of people willing to sell their text books. Look for them before buying or sell your books to the school.

    Classes are a great price, but unfortunately books can be a bit pricey. I've had semesters where the total costs of books are equal to or more expensive than the total of my classes. Also, the bookstore tends to be a rip off, they charge high prices and their buyback program gives you pocket change for them. I bought a biology book for about $150 and they only bought it back for $35.
