WHAT I LIKED

I liked that it was in the city. It was nice to branch out and be somewhere where everyone was their own person and there was so little judgement because no one knew you and everyone was just doing their own thing.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I moved from a small, farm town in Colorado, so I think I moved too much, too soon. The college itself is great, but my experience with it was stressful and confusing.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I truly love our Hospitality Building. It is so innovative and beautiful. It gives me a futuristic feeling and the building is made up of cubes which I love and there are glass and silver linings which gives it a sleek feeling. I love coming here and it makes my experience overall better and more motivating.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think in-person classes should be a little bit stricter about sanitation and cleanliness to prevent sickness.

WHAT I LIKED

It’s a nice campus and there are plenty of food options around the campus! Good staff and faculty, a little bit of a sketchy area but not horrible. Could be worse.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The sketchy area and off-campus housing around the area kinda suck too. Violence in the area too.
