Excellent school; established in 1901...started out at a YMCA adult evening college and grew from there. I received by BS Info. Tech in 2006 and have worked there for 8 years. Great place to work as well. Military friendly school; was able to use my GI Bill with no issues and was able to get 9 units from my military training/schooling. The school has regional accreditation and ABA accreditation for Law School. Highly recommended.
