Overall Rating

The office staff needs some social graces, not helpful and sometimes rude. Good place to start your education if you don't know what you are majoring in. The educators are there but,have to do the work. You cannot expect to be coddled when you are in college. Mommy did not come with you, you need to stand alone and do the work if you are going to succeed.
