This school is terrible . I am from chicago and there is nothing to do in the area. The parties are small, the safety is bad. Someone broke into my car and stole money from me and took 40 dollars out of my wallet while i was sleeping. I really want to go home and transfer i wouldn't reccommend anyone to attend this school.

The school is just the right choice for me. The staff no matter the ranking is polite, friendly, helpful and everyone tries to know everyone by name. The President of the school will eat lunch with the students and also knows us by name. The teachers in my field of studies are very knowledgeable and makes the lessons interesting to keep your attention and want to learn. I actually left the school my first semester for family reasons but contacted the school and went right back the Spring semester. This is the school I want to be at and glad I came back.

I was nervous to come to college as most kids are. Fortunately, every professor I had was extremely helpful and friendly. I finished the first semester absolutely loving my school. Professors made my courses easy to perform well in and also showed interest in every one of their students.
