WHAT I LIKED

The scenery even with buildings is still very beautiful when you are making your way to class. Many of my classes range on average between 10-20 students but also have a larger group of students in the big lecture halls. The 2 dining halls are within minutes of their respective housing locations which is nice. My RA was pretty cool and quite a few of my teachers did one on one conferences. Overall, my year was a pretty ‘hands-on’ experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are 2 dining halls, but if one of them is closed, if you aren’t in the respective housing location, then it’s a 10-15 minute walk to and from the dining hall. The dining hall closest to me was closed for dinner because of a staff shortage. The rooms are also on the smaller side, not a lot of surface space to place things and there aren’t many outlets. Maneuvering electronics to make more space is limited to the cord as extension cords aren’t exactly allowed.

WHAT I LIKED

I've enjoyed the professors at this college so far. My favorite professor is Dylan Harris as he is extremely passionate about the courses he teaches. Within the GES departments, the professors seem to really enjoy what they do and are very knowledgeable about the topics they teach.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The main concern is the cost of parking. The free parking lot is also a decent walk from the main campus which is where most of my classes take place.

WHAT I LIKED

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Very nice buildings, but very expensive and only a few teachers genuinely care about your success. Teachers not caring whether or not you passed.

WHAT I LIKED

Location is amazing, very nice and helpful professors. The rec center is very well equipped but gets busy.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining halls are nice establishments but the food is just bad. Always understaffed and you can taste it in the food.

WHAT I LIKED

I love the view on campus! It is amazing and I have not gotten used to it. I also have great experiences with my professors. They are all so helpful and they do great at explaining content and getting us students interested in topics.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Something that I do not like is trying to get from one end of campus to the other in a span of 10 minutes when it takes at least 30 minutes to get there. There is a shuttle, but if you miss a shuttle that was just at the stop you were going to get on at, you have to wait about 15 minutes for the next shuttle to show up.
