Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

The school is pretty good. Its very cheap for in-state students, although for out-of-state students its very expensive, so there's quite a divide there. Most of the classes are professional and interesting, although there are a few duds mixed in.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

I love the diversity of the people there; you never know who's going to be in your classes. All the teachers I have had so far have been really nice and extremely helpful. The campus is limited to one building, so it is easy to get around and find classrooms.
