I found the faculty to be very diverse and well trained in their respective studies. The courses were well laid out. Additionally, I never had a problem with communication from any department regarding any situation.
Austin from Kankakee, IL
Classes are small and teachers are very helpful and flexible. Campus is small and there isn't much to do. Faculty is very nice.
