What Students Are Saying

2.33 Average Rating
Beautiful surroundings, azaming staff/ faculty, great environment. The students and professor's are wonderful, nice easy going, friendly. The unviersity is really focusing on your education, small number of students in the class so it is easy to get one-one tutoring with the professor unlike USC or UCLA and other university the professor has time to help you in the areas you need help on.
