It's a great school! It's a great place to go after high school to get your feet wet into the college life. The campus is clean, safe, and has a lot of beautiful greenery. The staff is respectful and always helpful. Resources are available and easy to find. It's not a party school which is a plus. Lastly, the students are so diverse, in life experience and ethnically. You couldn't ask for a better school to go to after high school. I wish this could be a four year university.

The Fashion Apparel Design Program is a NEWBIE PROGRAM. HOWEVER, it is NOT PROPERLY PROMOTED. And many of us are suffering through this. The professors especially Prof. Rutter, are awesome. Just that this PROGRAM IS MISMANAGED!

We LEARN SO MUCH in the Fashion Industry and how everything comes together. BUT IT'S JUST THE PROGRAM IS MISMANGED IN SCHEDULING. WE LEARN ALL OF THESE THINGS (sewing, business, textiles, etc.), JUST FOR SOMEONE TO NOT LET US GO ON AND MESS UP THE SCHEDULING NOT LETTING ANYONE ELSE REALLY BE ABLE TO SCHEDULE WITH THIS ALONG WITH GEN ED COURSES.
I have done animal rescue for 20 years, but I am learning so much in the vet tech program and all I have done so far is prerequisites! It is all very technical information but very well tied into the day to day work of a vet tech. All of the professors have been very helpful and very engaged with myself and my fellow students. I chose this program over an online college because they emphasize hands on learning, which I think is very important in any medical field. Reading will only get you so far, if you can't place a catheter or take blood, you're not learning what's important.
