From day one the teachers are really excited about teaching. Many professors, while not able to get to know students in class, welcome office visits with open arms. The class variety makes it easy to explore options and get a taste of other majors. By the end of the semester students will feel like they have actually learned material, not just memorized it.

    Has a beautiful campus, with a vibrant student body. Talked with a few of the teachers during a campus visit and they seemed very nice and helpful. The dorms looked nice and Coyote village was awesome!

    The campus is small but nice. Professors aren't all that great, their is a huge difference between T.A.'s and older tenured Professors. Good price, sweet people, boring location.

    The University is a great school. The people come off a little egocentric, but they all seem nice in the end. The teachers have been a great help.
