campus is nice and not to big so that you can not make your next classes. the science and technology wing is very comprehensive especially with the new addition of the wacker program. staff really tries to go above and beyond for those who really need assistance.
Mathew from Hixson, TN
I love this school! It is perfect for those not sure about going to a large college, non-traditional students, and students who need a cheaper school to start at. I am happy with it almost completely!
