Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2017

College Life Rating

There aren't a large number of clubs and organizations, but I enjoyed the ones that I did join. In addition, the campus is extremely safe and I have never felt safer in any environment. The school usually has activities set up for weekends and fun trips to keep the students communicating and growing as a community.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

College Life Rating

Campus is a bit empty on weekends, but I like it that way. During the weekdays there's plenty to do and a ton of people around. The clubs are all easily accessible and always looking for more people. Campus feels safe at all times.
