Former Student - Last Attended 1999

Overall Rating

The school was your average state school with a decent academic and sports program. I like the diversity of the student body most, as well as the generally satisfying campus life. I have memorable experiences of the orientation process during my first days at the school and dorm life.


Overall Rating

My parents and I had a great experience touring the school. Everyone we met with was polite and very giving of their time to make us feel welcome and comfortable with the transititon process that I will be experiencing in the fall.
