Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

Overall I believe the school is nice, the classroom sizes are small which allow you to have a better connection with your professor. I have only been taking night classes, and so far my professors have been very energized which makes me love the class. The campus is a okay size and they are currently doing some construction, but when its finish the school will look beautiful.
