I am a sophomore and this school is ok, but if you are looking to be really challenged, this is not the school for you. I was hoping for the classes to be more challenging, but many feel like high school classes. Maybe that's because I have taken mostly general requirement courses so far. However, some classes are challenging but some are a joke. I think that if you want to learn a lot, you have to be motivated on your own and cant expect teachers to do things like force you to read the textbook and do the homework, because some dont even check hw. You have to be self motivated if you really want to learn in this school and make the most of it. I just don't like how some teachers are too lenient and let students get away with everything. Also, try not to take teachers with accents because it can make a class 10x more confusing.

The campus is nice especially in the early fall and the spring when the flowers are in bloom, the campus looks great during this time. Dont expect big green meadows or anything though, the campus is pretty small.

The people here are nice and friendly for the most part. I have met do no complete assholes or anything (so far), everyone has been really nice and friendly. The teachers are really nice and helpful too. Although some of the receptionists can be kind of bitchy though, but some are nice too.

There are also plenty of clubs to join and places to get food. The cafeteria food gets boring quick, I usually get coffee or soup or subway there. And then they have a Starbucks which isn't that great, and then food trucks which are good if youre low on cash.

Overall, I like this school, its a nice campus, people are nice, but I wish it was more challenging, and I dont feel that safe when I go home at night on the bus. If your main priority is getting a degree and making some friends, this is a good school for you. If you're really really smart then maybe try a different school, but at least it will be easy for you to get a great GPA. I don't consider myself a genius or anything, but I got a 3.6 gpa my freshman year and I felt like I barely tried. I hope it gets more challenging as I progress. Overall, I do like this school, except a lot of people have never heard of it which makes me feel kind of weird for going here. And also, if you had good grades and a decent sat score, they may give you a scholarship. For me, financial aid and my scholarship is more than enough money to pay the tuition, which is a huge plus and one of the reasons why I am at this school. I think what I like most about this school is how nice everyone is, and my advisor is really helpful too and cares about my academics.
