The food is awful and food service staff is rude and unprofessional. There is no social life. Small school. Nothing to do.

This college treats ALUMNI with disdain, does notSuper BrilliantEducation
This college treats ALUMNI with disdain, does not offer any type of respect or recognition for attendance and NO DISCOUNTS for Pool or Gym or Library. Yet, they want Money from alumni??? This school does paid the president who was caught with a faculty member who they fired, $40,0 plus Mercedes and house to stay and after his raise he left them high and dry. NO PRINCIPLES and they screw students.

So far I am not impressed.Nursing
So far I am not impressed. I have not been able to make it past the admissions process yet. I am a veteran. I have made multiple phone calls to my admissions advisor & the military veterans resource center requesting a call back with no response. Getting a hold of anyone is like pulling teeth. So I call the admissions office who transfers me to someone, who in turn transfers me to someone else, only to be transferred back to the initial person. When I finally reach someone in the military veterans resource center, they are not very helpful, friendly, or enthused in assisting me. I feel like I am having to jump through hoops to get into the university & I am having to jump through hoops to finish the next steps for registering for classes. I am trying to find someone who can assist me with the next steps after the acceptance process, but so far no luck. I was told around 8:30 am that my call would be returned by the military veterans resource center & it's going on 11am & still no word. This is not a good way I feel I'm starting off. There seems to be no guidance or assistance so far after you are accepted. I will keep seeing how this goes, but I am already getting the impression that I may have to take my time & money elsewhere. Will come back with update to see if anything changes, but this is my review & rating for right now.
