This school is only sufficient for students who plan to attend part-time or have limited options for attending university in the United States. The resources are there to learn what you need to learn to do quality research, but you will not receive the mentoring or relationships with faculty that can advance your career at other schools. The simple reason is that the faculty are overworked due to an asymmetric focus on research volume, they have to work harder for resources and publications than faculty at other schools because the institution doesn't have great name recognition, the school doesn't prioritize research and teaching equally, and in most cases the way they interact with students has no impact on their careers.
