Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I think this will be a fantastic school to attend this coming year. Its location in West Palm Beach is great; it is less than a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, meaning good waves, a nice suntan, and the possibility of getting a job as a lifeguard. If that is not enough, there is a Chick-Fil-A on campus; what more could anybody want?
