This is a great school for locals to receive an education at a low-cost. The professors who work there genuinely care about their students' success and will assist them as much as they can with succeeding in their classes. The assistants who work in the office are helpful but sometimes lose paperwork. A student needs to be prepared to take their graduation requirements into their own hands to finish on time.
