Overall this school is a good school. Though it doesn't have a campus feel, it makes up in convience. With its fast food spots to get a bite to eat during breaks and stores to buy anything from school supplies to clothes in between classes. I loved that it's rig next to the bus terminal and train station so you can live anywhere and be able to get to your class fast. Teachers here are very diverse just like the student body and school resources personnel so no matter what language you speak fluently I'm sure a staff or student could help you. If your interested in coming to his school my advice is to do everything early like scheduling classes, purchasing books and especially applying for financial aid.
