Absolutely love this small college. It has 2 campuses and would recommend it to anyone who’s fresh outta high school trying to get their basics first before going on to a university. Tuition is very affordable!

My favorite part of going to this college has been the quality of education for the price. It is only a two-year school, but the classes still offer the same quality material that a larger university would and with the added charm of small class sizes and a more personalized experience. I was even able to take classes concurrently through high school and get an entire semester out of the way. You can get anywhere on campus in a three-minute walk, but you wouldn't need to make it that long because there are parking lots surrounding each building. It's a very comfortable place to spend the first two years of your college education, and most of the instructors seem to really love their jobs. Even in my world civilization class at 8am, Dr. Power is cracking jokes and making the material fun.
So far this has been the best place I have been to be taught anything. The teachers are so nice and understanding and helpful. If you don't know something, they will let you know. There is no cafeteria but there is vending machines.
