It is a great school especially in the field of Business and Management. It is not easy to get into this school unless you meet the required GPA. I believe that the school should continue to do well and promote in area that need changes with upcoming technology. Overall it is a good school and its location is great. It is very close to everything.
Everyone at the school is very supportive and helpful from the professors to students. All students from freshman to seniors are treated equal, make things very easy to transition as a freshman. there were alot of activities the first month of school to make student comfortable with the area, with the facilities and being away from home.
