Overall Rating

This college has an amazing concept: work for you tution. However, they abuse the power that paying students' tuition gives them. Many things about the school are done very well, but some things are a bit over done. I love that there is a Christian focus and many of the rules are practical and helpful, but on the other hand, many of them are somewhat outrageous.
