Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

The classrooms are clean, not oversized, and the professors and professional but the workload is eccessive

Academics Rating

This college promotes cheating. They do everything they can to make sure that students cheat in class on every single assignment. The school is very antagonistic against any faculty member who disciplines the students there in any way whatsoever. Since the school tolerates very poor behavior from students, one can expect the graduates from this institution to be very undisciplined, disrespectful, lazy, and dishonest. These are characteristics that no employer seeks for. The personnel are very harsh against all faculty members since they treat faculty members there like criminals. The staff there are rude. The police harass faculty members there for no reason whatsoever.
