Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

The school is average. It is a great school, however, if you are going for criminal justice. The food is okay at best, but there is a good selection. Be careful if going off campus; it is not in a good area.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

The school is just the right size for me. The classes are small. The professors are approachable. There is a lot to do around campus. Make sure you get involved with at least one activity. The surrounding area is not real safe. Just be careful at all times and be aware of your surroundings. There are a lot of restaurants and shopping malls in the vicinity. The school makes it easy to get around by providing shuttles and mass bus transits passes.
