Important details seemed to get lost in translation. I actually had to register a week after school already started becuase of miscommunications with the financial aid department. The only way scholarships really help you out is if it is covered by athletics. In fact, my first year was suppose to be paid for between my FASFA, athletic scholarship and numerous academic scholarships, however, the advisor for financial aid told me the only way i wouldn't have to pay anything would be if the wholke tuition was paid for by athletics...

I love that my school is community based. It's a small campus so you get to know everyone. The security guard is even cool with all the students. I even had a conversation with him one day about me arriving late to class. He told me to be on time because missing a class is missing a mission impossible. Everyone is also friendly. Even if you're struggling in a class, there's the tutoring center and other professors that are willing to help.

Always Growing – Our college is ever-growing, including the campus, number of new students each year, and the amount of student activities for engaging incoming freshman. We were just blessed with a brand new athletic center only just a year ago. We are currently under going construction to expand the amount of space in our main building and will be getting brand new tennis courts built in a very short couple of years. The science program is also flourishing with the approval of a brand new science degree that is now being offered here. My college is always growing for the better.
