I have had a great experience at my school thus far. It's close to home and most professors are doing a good job teaching what should be known. I have gained lots of knowledge from my professors and I hope to gain more. I will be returning to this school for my Master's degree because these professors want nothing but the best for us.

I like how close my school is to my home and things around me such as Chicago. It makes it easier since I have to pay for a lot on my own and need to work and go to school. School is fun for me and always learning is fun for me and so far i like my school and feel I am learning a lot and becoming interested in many things.
