Horrible school.Quite BrightEnglish
Horrible school. Campus life is terribly boring and the students are awful to live around (unsanitary, loud, rude, bullies, snooty, arrogant, fake, etc.). One day you think you've made a friend, the next they pretend like they never met you. Too much work, not enough learning. School is pretentious, they think they're wonderful and perfect. NOT!!! School cares about $$$$$, not students. They film a lot on campus, so expect parking blocks and cameramen standing in your way while trying to get to class (and no, they will not hire you as an extra). Most professors have very strict attendance policies. The location is safe, and right by the train/bus station. Cheap places to eat are far away if you have to walk. I have nothing good to say about this school or its students. The tuition is too high to deal with its BS.

At first it's hard to get use toQuite BrightLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
At first it's hard to get use to but overall it's a good school that has a lot of opportunities. Last year was my first year and I did have some ups and downs but I made a few friends that were hard to leave. The other comments said, the eveironment isn't friendly and you can hear everything in other the dorms but it takes time to make friends and you will find amazing people.

I liked the academicQuite BrightOther
I liked the academic work but I hated living on campus. Some of the students aren't friendly and there's no community. The walls are incredibly thin so you can hear everything (imagine everything terrible). Isolated especially during the weekends. Many people leave for a reason.
