What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
The courses and subjects are tough but the key to understanding the lessons is to really pay attention and of course, take notes. The environment and social life is not that bad compare to what others say. Overall, I do recommend it for those who aspire to work in the technology and design world!
Vincess Jasmine from North Plainfield, NJ
