I really like the school. Everyone is really helpful and the instructors are pretty great. There is always someone there to help you with any problem you have. My most memorable experience was my first semester in my art appreciation class when we broke up into groups and made board games then got to play everyone else's games.

I really liked that in your curriculum, your instructor/professor/s worked very closesly with you in the classroom and with scheduling classes. I would reccomend that before you pick and area of study, try to get some of the general education courses done first. Even if it is only a semester or two semesters worth, but it will really help you when you need to concentrate on core curriculum courses.
