Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I really enjoyed my tour of the university's campus. Everyone seemed to be friendly and the campus was very aesthetically pleasing. I was very glad I was able to tour their nursing school facilities even though it was not a planned nursing tour day. The dining hall had a great variety of ethnic foods as well as sandwiches and American favorites.
