I like that the community here is very inclusive, and there are a lot of opportunities to rebuild your future if you've been through difficult times in the past.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Sometimes the food can be kind of hit-and-miss, and some of the buildings are a little worn down.

It has been a pretty good experience for me socially and academically. It has been much easier for me because being on the soccer team, and making friends was not a problem as I was already living around people with goals just like me. I would suggest getting involved in a group you are interested in whether it's sports or something else.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't find too many problems. I just thought it was good but could have been better.
