Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

I've only been at the London campus of the school so far, so I find it hard to comment on the New York campus, though I'm looking forward to visiting next year! My experience in the study abroad program through Liberal Studies has been wonderful! I've enjoyed the experience! Information is readily available, people are helpful, the atmosphere is great!
