The professors are great but the administrative aspect of the school is not helpful at all.

Middle of the city school, therefore not much social interaction. Some teachers are great others are subpar.

My overall experience is awsome. I love it! My favorite experience is when my friends and I designed a group just for students to openly express themselves to a whole group of students. I would chose my school all over again because I was able to express who I really am in that school.
