I haven't been at the school very long but it seems nice. At first other students seem stand-offish but as soon as you're in class with them or talk to them they're very nice. The teachers are friendly and the campus is easy to navigate.

I think the campus police look for any slightest infraction to give you an ticket with an unreasonable amount on it. And Half the population smokes So why try to make it illegal. Also Stop increasing tuition prices.
