What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
So many things I could say! The campus is gorgeous year round, the people (students, staff, faculty, etc) are all so friendly, helpful, and supportive. There's always something happening on campus. The food is great (and the DH staff: Grace, Marisol, Malvin...). As soon as I set foot on campus I knew I was home. I really do mean all this, as cheesy as it sounds. I love Naz!
