Overall Rating

Check that the majors you are interested in are actually at this campus. I was mislead and as a result, spent a very unhappy year there. The campus empties out on the weekends and becomes a ghost town. The financial, registration, and counseling offices were difficult to work with in my experience and required constant wheedling to accomplish even the most menial tasks. Registering for classes could take days, and even now asking for transcripts requires a drive and constantly being passed off to other departments and secretaries, who are unpleasant and unwilling to cooperate.
