Academic Rigor
Some classes are easier than others, that's just how life is. Choose the right classes, put forth the effort, and you will be pleased with the results.
Dorm Life
Common areas are kept clean, and quiet hours are typically enforced. On average, you'll find that you share a bathroom with 3 other students (not fun!).
Food and Dining
All dining areas are usually kept clean and orderly. It takes a while for your stomach to get used to the food though.

Did learn a lot
I applied myself and took everything seriously, so I got a lot out of it.
Did enjoy being here
I really enjoyed every aspect of it. Most instructors were very serious about helping you to attain the knowledge and were truly concerned with your progress. The admin staff are very helpful and friendly. I appreciate every one of them.
Bang for the buck
I wish I could afford their Grad School program or that they had more scholarships available.
Tips for prospective students
Do the right thing and take your learning seriously. I saw how some students were simply trying to do the least and get out. Remember, knowledge is power, so get the most power you can. Be open minded about what you will be asked to do, they are only asking you so that they can help in your success.
Great for these types of students
Open minded, willing to learn, and want the best for their life.

Academic Rigor
When I visited they said the professors had a one year contract and if they weren't performing well that they were gone. The school also has many varying options of degrees and classes to take that cover a wide variety of interests.
Dorm Life
Compared to other colleges, the rooms seemed larger and had a nice feel to them. They all have a bathroom that you will share with suite mates and everyone is in a close proximity giving the dorms a sense of community.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria looked amazing when I visited, the food smelled pleasant and my tour guide said the food got better every year. There were also many different options on where you could eat depending on the meal plan.
What to do for fun
From what my tour guide stated there are many things to do for fun and even if you have a lot of classes you still get free time. There are many athletic events to attend and a gym on campus if you want to work out.
Bang for the buck
At first glance it seems a little high. Based only my GPA and ACT score I was offered $10,000 a year and that significantly brought it down to a reasonable price. During my visit I sat in a conference room and discussed other forms of financial aid and the school really wants to help each student as much as they can. They do not want the money to be the main factor for deciding not to attend.
Clubs and Activities
Being a full business school I didn't really think there would be many clubs or activities. Turns out there are a lot of clubs to join that do a number of different things on and off campus.
Campus Safety
I saw campus police walking around while I was on my tour. One of the questions I asked was about theft and my tour guide said that there was none. Most people respect others personal items.

you will be getting your money worth
Tips for prospective students
Make sure that you either take classes at a Community college for your reading and math or have at least a 20 on your ACT because they would try to put you in classes that dont count as credit and you can always test out of classes to. also make sure you have plenty of scholorships
Great for these types of students
