Health & Safety: Very low crime and very good security.

2 College Senior

Majors: The head of the Criminal Justice program is terrible. He is a terrible professor, very unorganized, not helpful, and doesn't understand the material in the classes he teaches. I've had to avoid him in order to actually make any progress in my area of study and I am very disappointed that he came to class one day boasting of a promotion when he isn't deserving of his position.

5 College Senior

Majors: It was very easy to apply.

Campus Strictness: I have no idea. I'm sure there is a policy against underage drinking and illegal drug use, but as I don't use drugs and am 25, I haven't concerned myself with the policies.
