This school has done nothing in particular toBrightEnglish
This school has done nothing in particular to scorn me, so I am not an irritated student with a chip on my shoulder. That being said, this school is a skid mark on the face of America, festering in the surrounding town's debt and failure. It has a multitude of students coming in, and yet does absolutely nothing to fill the gaping holes in its system. You have to assume that the money they garner, which is a few thousand more per student than your typical university, is being spent on the salaries of the professors. You would assume that, that is, until you dive head-first into the boiling vat of bull crap information that they vehemently shove down your throat. Your education here is good for just about nothing. The graduation rate here is a whopping 20%. That should speak for itself.

Question
I love this school!! The campus is beautiful!BrightEducation
I love this school!! The campus is beautiful! All the students and teachers that I met were really nice and very friendly. The dorms are super nice but are up on a hill above campus.The classes are small which is great because you get more one on one time with your profs. I can't wait to come back next year!

Question
This is a school for proactive people.Quite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
This is a school for proactive people. If you want to be challenged and involved you must seek it out, but opportunities are there and the faculty and staff are very approachable and amenable to ideas. Because it is small there are lots of ways the campus can be improved and the staff is always to suggestions on how to go about that process. You leave knowing you've become better and that you made a difference with experience that looks good on a resume to boot.
