    The academic environment is not too competitive and the tuition is very affordable compared to most other colleges within the area. The campus is visually appealing and the staff is generally helpful.

    Overall it is a good school to attend for many reasons and the more you open up to people around you the better the experience is. People are welcoming for who you are and it is also a fun campus. The courses are relevant and educational and the student to teacher ratio is small which makes it nice because the professors know their students and are more available for help if needed.
