What I like the most about this campus are the flexible scheduling of classes, Tuition is cheaper than most state colleges and universities in Georgia, and that some of the instructors give assignments that can be used in the student's daily routine. What I do not lke about the campus is that the Financial Aid Office is overcrowded, the quarter option has changed to Semester which makes graduating from the preferred degree even more difficult and more time consuming, there are not enough required courses available on campus for current stuendents enrolled at this institution, and there are not many extracurricular activiteis like clubs (DECA, FCCLA, etc.) available for this students to participate in at this institution. This institution should expand his parking lots because there is not enough parking spaces for all the students and instructors!
