4 College Junior

Student Body: Everyone seems to be accepted

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Free stuff and nice people.

3 College Junior

Student Body: It is ok. There are some fun things that the student body does, but there needs to be more fun things planned throughout the school year, and not near finals week.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I think that because it is a community college there a lot of people there who do not really care and are just going because there parents are making them, but though there are the bad seeds there are a lot of lovely people too!

4 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I like that the student body seems to participate in a lot of events and clubs that can help others get to know each other and also help each other support one another on their road to success! Almost everything I attend at the college that I find beneficial to me is free of charge and that is important to me since I pay my own tuition.
