    This school is offered at a reasonable price for both in-state and out-of-state. The out-of-state is more costly, but I found it to be the same as some other schools' instate, so I do not have complaints there. There is academic support and encouragement of activities.

    this is one of the worst schools to attend if you: 1) care about walking a mile on a steep hill to get your your dorm room 2) care about eating the same terrible food everyday and waiting in line for 30 minutes to get your food 3) care about having air conditioning in your room 4) care about submitting a maintenance request and someone actually coming to do something about it 5) care about rude staff and teachers that do not teach what they will test you on 6) care about teachers keeping up with your completed work that you studied for and got a good grade 7) care about fun activities on campus 8) desire to have a good college experience to save your time, energy, money, stress levels and more, do not attend this school. if you do, don't live on campus.

    Get more ram cash then meal swipes. Besides the nursing program, I am not really sure about how competitive any of the other offered programs are.

    Once you go here you will definitely have a sense of Ram Pride and you won't hesitate to show it off. You won't always like being here but the friends you meet will be your friends for a lifetime.
