I love that the college is small enough so that everyone knows each other but it is big enough to have amazing professors from all over the world. What I do not like is the location because it is very unsafe.

I am attending the Benton campus and it is amazing. The professors are very knowledgeable and teach accordingly.

This college turned out to be much better than I thought it would be. With a diverse environment close to home I feel comfortable, focused, and ready to learn. There are a few kinks like some rules more strict than other colleges but overall it's a great experience. I love it here and I feel like I can really evolve into the person that I am striving to be.
