I've been there for a little while and it's okay. It's not the best but it's not the worst.

I absolutely love my University, as soon as I stepped on to the campus I felt at home. The instructors and other staff make you feel welcome and help you find your way around the campus, classes, and anything else you may need assistance with. I get wonderful instruction from my professors and feel like I have had a truly unique experience.
