In the beginning, I was a bit iffy about attending this school. I heard that there were a lot of fights that took place, and overall was a not so safe environment for school. However, once classes started, my opinion completely changed. The professors really care about your education and genuinely want students to succeed. The overall atmosphere is much nicer than what most students tend to think.
