Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2007

Overall Rating

As a master's student I was in the business of going to class and then returning home so it's difficult to speak about the entirety of the school. I can say, however, that the facilities are excellent and most of the professors are quite helpful. The registrar office and the financial aid office are also quite helpful in getting you exactly what you need.
