As an adult in the age range of 35 to 105 my expectations are probably different.

The lack of temptation in the city encourages study, but I found hard to work in groups in each class. Based on my experience with younger students here, I definitely prefer to work on my own; I try to do my best, not just pass a class.

Like in most schools, memorization is the key to good grades; not enough emphasis in practical application of the course work.

Most of my professors are helpful and willing to spend time with you if you are willing to work hard.

Housing for families have a lot of room for improvement. Family housing on campus has not internet connection, but has poor basic cable. It puzzles me why the university provides a service that dumb people down, and not a service necessary for classes and research.

Online classes should be less expensive than classroom classes, everywhere! Here online classes are around $300.00 more expensive per credit hour than classroom classes. It is a bizarre world.

The school wants to encourage people to take online classes because the cost of delivery is much lower, to do so they charge more. It appears the trend is to provide less and less options for classroom classes with the expectation that students will opt for online classes; common sense tells me that the rate of transfers will increase.

The choices of food in campus are the same as in any small mall's food court. On the other hand, if you like to cook, the local stores are well supplied and the prices reasonable. There also are a few restaurants in town.
