I am from a NYC, so I was fairly depressed when I settled into this tiny town (surprisingly, the area is referred to as a city!), especially since I've never been so far from home. It wasn't too long before I familiarized myself with the school and got acquainted with other students. The school isn't very diverse, although there are a great deal of international students. In all 3 years of my attending, thus far, I am the only NYer. Side note: you'll need a car to get away--Walmart is across a highway. Overall, once you get acquainted, it isn't so bad. NOTE: I am a vegetarian, and the cafeteria meals aren't diversed.

I chose this school because I wanted to be able to do all my classes online because of my work schedule. This program works the best for me.

During my time at my college i have just got accepted into it and so far i have had a blast. I made a few visits up and everyone was so helpful and kind. They were ahead and on top of everything and i am so thankful for them helping out with this crazy and new experience.
