I am in non freshman there at the campus, so I got a lot of learning during orientation. The teachers care about the students safety and will be there no matter what when the student needs tutoring. My parents even like the university, and their thoughtfulness on violence, and safety. also, a very diverse campus, everyone gets along great.
