What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
This school requires a good amount of studying and focus, plus you'll be walking quite a bit from class to class. It has a laid back atmosphere, and the teachers are helpful. It's a very good value for the price.

Personally, I feel fortunate to have graduated from this university with the best of memories.
