My overall experience at this school what, to be frank, underwhelming. I found myself unimpressed by the attempt the University made to help with the high school to college transition.

I rate this with the utmost sincerity in saying that this college was not my first choice but once I ended up here, I started to like it a lot more than originally anticipated. The teachers give a fair work load while still teaching in class effectively. I met a bunch of amazing people whom I'm lucky to call my friends now. The only problem is, they do not have the major I was seeking so I may consider transfer but that is a problem for the future.
