Ruth Fessehaye



It has a great curriculum and clean buildings. However, the dorms are extremely small, the dining hall is small as well and there are limited food options in the cafeteria. The students here have small closed-off groups that don't allow for new students to interact.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The community seems to be closed off to new people. The university's sports facility is quite small with no swimming pool which makes summer days and any other hot day quite unbearable.



Professors are always there to help students when needed. A variety of clubs and fraternities are available on campus. A very friendly learning environment.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are limited choices on food availability on campus plus there are not enough faculty members for students.
