Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I like that it close to my home and that the atmosphere looks so live. I know people who attend this school so I am happy I know some people already. I attended this college while I was participating in Upward Bound. I did it for four years, while in high school and I just loved the whole experience! The whole campus is so beautiful! It's a lot of walking but the exercise is great!
