What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
The teachers here have an actual personality and care about their students.
Any time you have a problem or question the staff in the office listen and direct you to where you need to go.
The atmosphere on campus is amazing; with ponds, lakes, and a few nature walks the atmosphere on campus is relaxing and in general just perfect.
