Overall Rating

Local, tuition reasonable, staff and professors approachable. In retrospect, I wish I would have taken more advantage of the guidance counselor's help with track planning and options. But making an appointment has never been difficult nor appointment times hard to fit in. Track planning help is a valuable resource that I could have used earlier in my college life.
