3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You must live on campus for 3 years. in military like barracks, BUT you get used to it and ive become very fond of the rooms and how close you are to your fellow classmates.
They are 1940s building that have all been remodels in the last 8 years. so they look cool on the outside but are modern on the inside

3 College Sophomore

Computers: We are required to buy a certian computer for about 900 dollars, it is a Dell PC, and it is great.
You do not need a printer of your own, the library offers free black and white printing .
The dorms are not wireless but the ethernet is very fast. academic buildings and the library are wireless.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a marine transportation and logistics major. I go out on practice cruises to test my navigation abilities, as well as use simulators. The technology and hands on aspects are amazing.
My teachers are almost all Master Mariners and know the ins and outs of the career.
