What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
Although this is a commuter school, I love being here every day. The instructors are helpful and understanding of any situation you might be in and there are more opportunities on campus to get involved with than I had thought. You meet a lot of different people and will find that the school is great whether you are a commuter or resident.
