I like that the classes were small. They need to change the dorm rooms. Some of the teachers were not that friendly. I also think that they need to hire teachers who are willing to helps students.

I really enjoy being here. The people are extremely nice and they make me feel welcomed. At first i was scared because i was away from home in California and that i didnt have any friends. But that changed rapidly and i can call this my home away from home.
