What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
I would recommend this university to anyone! They have great resources for the students attending in order to help them figure out what type of career to strive for. This university is also very prestigious so it will help give credibility to your degree for when you go out into the work force.
Barbara from Belleville
The campus is beautiful, a relatively good size, and welcoming. There's always something to do whether its a first 56 activity or just chilling in the Pirate's Cellar. There's always somewhere you can go or someone you can go to when you are in need of help.
