Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

I like my school thus far, little concerned in the beginning with the violence issues off campus. The school has taken corrective action by adding security. I like that I am only 40 minutes from my home town, which makes it easy to come home any time on weekends. My dorm is roomy and comfortable.


Alumnus - Grad Year 1986

Overall Rating

The campus now is state of the art and very competetive. Always the teaching program is top notch. The town of California is small and somewhat depressed. However the school does have many clubs and activities.The education is very affordable.
