Most of the teachers really care and try to teach what they believe is important to learn for future careers. A few try to give the same education that they learned at ivy league schools. The work load is incredibly manageable and on the light side. The building are very nice, but the Wi-Fi is terrible and exceptionally slow. Most of the counselors are terrible and do not care about the students, however, there are a couple who are fantastic and get the job done quickly without all the run around. The programs are great and the education is worth every penny.

Great student center. Personally part of the DSPS program and the counselors are very accommodating. I have dealt with some which aren't as helpful, especially out of the DSPS program. Cafeteria is large, lots of options. Computer cafe is great for studying. Student services are always there to help. Free ID cards started about a couple years ago. When I first started, there was a $2 fee. Campus is kept up to date, unlike the sister college.

Great professors who are very accommodating. They make sure you understand what is being taught, not just teaching at you. In a Chem class, teacher offered extra credit for attending study sessions with the tutoring center, so it was a win-win for the students. Higher math classes do have more workloads, as well as the sciences. Really easy to fall behind in the classes if you miss a day and don't have a couple of people who can give notes on the lesson.
