Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

I liked the whole thing of the school wasn't far from where I live. It was mucher cheaper than other scools that I looked at. When I started school I was nervous, but the professors were very friendly and helpful. I am not a rich women I work hard for my money and it never seems like I have enough money to do things that interest me like go to school for Nursing. If you could help me out I would greatly appreciate it, I know you hear this from almost all the students are people that are applying. Thank you, and have a good day.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I wish I knew definitely what I wanted when I enrolled because I would be working that field now. The professors and support staff are quite exceptional. The school as an entity in itself reminds me of a big brother or sister...one that wants to see you reach for and succeed in achieving your dreams. I belong to Phi Theta Kappa and it is a wonderful organization and has opened doors for me as well. What a wonderful place to get an education and prepare for a career.
