The faculty is very helpful and flexible. I work as well so flexibility of schedule is very important. I had a problem with one of my math classes and wanted to drop out. When the professor found out she worked with me one on one and I ended up with a B.

I work full time so i Look for a good school that is convienient and that has a good reputation and i go online to check out the stats of the professors and see how most of them rate as far as that goes i usually have good luck. I have enjoyed the school. I aslo have heard good things about many other close area schools that i would like to change too. and this is why i am on here today.The more you go to school the easier it is to find your way around, and the friendlier you are the easier it is. I work at a Hospital and i am use to talking to everyone, and i will stop and talk to just about anyone.
