The staff is so unfriendly and unreliable. Don't count on the EVER answering their phones, even during business hours or tending to any matter that needs any attention.

I like my college because it is in the Caribbean and I live five minutes away. I am around friends and I have also made a lot more from all over the United States. I chose this university because it's cheaper than most in the USA and I'm and still trying to figure out what I want to pursue as a career.

IT is a really nice school, however I would really appreciate if the research opportunities were not so limited.
