Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1974

Overall Rating

My experience is decades old and my comments come from those years. The university and the education I got there were very good and prepared me for further education at Auburn in Veterinary Medicine. I had the advantage of military experience and the maturity that comes with that. I also lived off campus, which made a difference in several ways.
