Learning wise I guess it's okay but there isn't one thing they haven't managed to mess up since I applied, registered and paid my fees for this coming fall semester.

The college is very strict when it comes to academics. However, the school has multiple resources so you will be able to succeed even at their highest levels of education that they offer. Good school over all. Much more challenging than an average college.

Barely even have been on campus yet. Classes start at the end of the month. So far I am impressed with how aesthetically pleasing the school is, and I love all the tradition.
