The food plan could be imporoved, but overall this school is great. As a psychology major, I feel as though I am getting a great education that will benefit me in the long run.

What I really appreciate about the school is the helpful academic resources available to the student body. What makes it even better is that the majority of these resources are free!

I don't feel like a student in most of my classes, I feel like a number. Most of my teachers brag about how they get money from making us buy a certain text book that we never even use.
