What Students Are Saying

3.47 Average Rating
such an amazing school and campus. the professors i have had so far are very nice, friendly and very helpful. the campus is really big and there are many places to study, there is always a quiet place to study.
Jazmin from Huntington Park, CA
It's a beautiful campus with its own transportation system that allows students to get from place to place at a low cost. It's astounding that the campus has a very diverse community where various students from different ethnicity and cultures meet and communicate to one another. I enjoy the motivational speeches that enable students, like me, to thrive and succeed in their career, they will literally stand with you until you've achieved your goals, and aspire you to challenge yourself into reaching higher goals.
