I think UHD is a good school to attend for working people. The hour flexibility is very beneficial to working people and that is what I like most about UHD. This is my second semester so I have no memorable experiences at this time.


Overall Rating

THE SCHOOL IS A VERY DECENT SCHOOL, LOOKING AT THE ENVIRONMENT. I LOOKED AT THE SCHOOL ON NTHE INTERNET SINCE I HAVE NOT VISITED THE SCHOOL BEFORE. TEH CLASSROOMS ARE SPACIOUS AND NICE.
