WHAT I LIKED

If I am being honest, I do enjoy the events that we have and I enjoy the learning materials. I also really appreciate some of the teacher's efforts to get us to learn in an enjoyable way. I also think that the campus is beautiful in some ways. They always make sure they take care of the grass.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If I am being honest, the communication with the students in the school needs to be a lot better. And when something needs to be fixed in an area of housing, they don’t come asap to fix it.

WHAT I LIKED

The ability to pursue my major while being taught by professors who have experience in the field and are passionate about sharing their knowledge while encouraging me to fulfill my goals and dreams.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Not having the opportunity to have a campus visit and tour before attending along with other services being unavailable still due to the Covid-19 pandemic/global shutdown and statewide restrictions. Having a personal vehicle is helpful although not a game-changer if you embrace the public transportation (students ride for free-which is a plus) Yet it takes a while - so patience and extra time are key.
