So far so good! They have a wonderful library and fair lab access to lab students. This quarter, the student board hosted a dance to get everyone excited about the new year! The sports fields are well maintained and the gym is perfectly functional.

The only downfall is the lab access is limited to only when a volunteer is present.

I liked this school. The academics were pretty good and challenging at times which is what I needed. The professors could have been a little bit more helpful at times, but that's the way it is with schools sometimes. The campus is really nice for a small town, and it was easy to find my way around to all my different classes. They were helpful in getting me the information that I needed to have for running start and made it go a lot smoother for me. My overall experience from this college was good. Coming to this school after going to a high school that was merely adequate may have made it seem that much better, but if anything, it allowed me to really understand what it was like to be more on my own for school. On top of all of this, the staff and other students were nice to me as a whole and made my experience at this school enjoyable.

The main reason that I am attending this college is that it provides a "running start" program where high school juniors and seniors can take college classes for free and get college and high school credit. This sort of program is offered at many community colleges, but major colleges and universities do not offer them as much. Another thing is that the classes I have taken are more relaxed than most university-setting classes. Another difference is a self-paced algebra course that I am tutoring for. This provides opportunities for algebra students to advance more quickly, saving time and money.
