"The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others. ~A. Schweitzer~ Dealing with Resident Life Housing staff and Financial Aid was literally an anxiety ridden nightmare. It was rare to even get anyone to pick up the phone many times. If you do speak to someone you are told one thing then only to find out last minute that there was an issue all along and staff has the audacity to blame you and never take accountability for their mistakes. There is a huge lack of professionalism and definitely several sneaky, nasty, dishonest, disrespectful, rude and mendacious staff members that don't seem to give a crap about people. Dealing with professors seemed wonderful thus far but it was short lived as the miscommunication between two staff members caused issues for attendance. This school could be better but that would first have to start with an evaluation, training and a change of certain administrative staff members. This school is below standards."

"The Campus itself was small, but I liked that. I felt comfortable in small classes, and it gave me the opportunity to meet others. The teachers (especially science professors) weren't the best, but all the other teachers I loved and learned a lot from them. I stayed in the dorms for one semester and had numerous problems with the people. I don't like how they just choose roommates for you. I kind of wished they had set me up with roommates whom I can relate to. But on the bright side, the dorms were really nice, and I definitely can't complain about that. It's a good school to take a few classes at to either boost your grade or to retake a class over the summer, but I wouldn't recommend doing the full two years there. The staff working in the offices such as registrar, financial services, etc. weren't overly friendly either. If they had just put a smile on their face and spent some more time helping me rather than yessing me and not explaining how to do certain things, my experience there would've been a little bit better."
