While my school does seem to have it's share of problems in the bureaucracy/money management area, I have been nothing short of thrilled with the education I am getting there.

I feel very fortunate to have access to such an affordable college with such knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful professors. I am an art student who primarily takes art related courses to further my art career, and I have been very impressed with the art instruction at this school. My teachers have all been very talented artists in their own right, who are also involved and interested in the current art world outside of education. Both of these things are very important to me when choosing an instructor.

As for the courses themselves, I have been thrilled to see how many different types of classes are offered just within the art and graphics departments, and I will definitely be taking advantage of all of them that I can while I am here. The only downside is the newly imposed limit on the number of classes within a category that you can take, which I know the teachers as well as the students are not happy with. It is unfortunate that budget problems have forced the school to make this change, because this school is such a valuable resource to anyone who wants a good education affordably in this city!

The athletic center is bad. If one is not enrolled in an physical education class, one cannot use the school's gym. I think anyone enrolled in the school should be able to use the gym. But other than that, I think the resources on this campus is excellent! The health resource center is great! We even have a dentist; there are also other counselors that are helpful to students. Although the library is quite small, there are many desks for the students to work at. But there are no good place for students to do group projects because the whole library is quite. The wifi on campus is pretty bad.

Unfortunately for Engineering students, you should take care that your classes will actually transfer using assist.org... For the schools I am interested in attending, very few of the courses would transfer, so I did not take them. All of the pre-requisites do, though!
