The ideal learning environment for young scholars. A great place to network with other people. A place overflowing with opportunity.

Awesome school. I am a commuter and I still feel so much at home in this school .Like anything else, you really have to go out there and get your name heard more then anything else. Stay in your dorm and you'll be bored
