this school is very different because it gives you a new environment. you are surrounded with more opportunities in part time jobs or actual careers once you graduate. you will never be bored at this school because there are a lot of things to do.

A wonderful school that offers student multiple opportunities to excel in multiple fields. It is located in a downtown setting were there are multiple opportunities to interning and volunteering experiences. There are also many non-traditional students such a parents, older individuals and those who have full-time jobs.
