The students, administration and professors care to help make your time on our campus the best. We are well known for being very close with our prior alumni. And there are a lot of opportunities to speak with them. Both online, at Roslin Center, we're our college and career services is, and even during our homecoming events. I have a mentor on campus who is also an alumni who is helping me carve my future. I also work closely with my professors and advisors. Academically it does well.

Although campus life slacks. They do have events that are free. But often it runs during holidays, and certain areas of the semesters. If it's not the beginning of the new semester, homecoming, Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas. It's up to the clubs you attend, the friends you meet, and whatever you decide to do with yourself.

The science facilities are top notch and relatively brand new, you wont be disappointed. The business, economics, language, english, education, building is great. The art building may be slightly outdated than others but the facilities inside make up for it! all the buildings are well-maintained even old main! We are getting a new athletic building which would be the one set of facilities that I'd say is the most out-dated on campus. Library is a little old but has everything that you would need. There are plenty of computer labs around campus. I'd say there is probably more facilities than what is needed by the current student population that uses them.

The opportunities the school provides is wonderful. The reason I was attracted to this school was because of its opportunities to study abroad, and this past month I actually spent in Nicaragua pursuing my dreams!
