Highly recommended. Very affordable education with great people and staff! I've been here since 2018 learning the ropes of "college life" and what it means to be in college. I usually always get a return because my classes are so cheap. Many resources for help you just have to seek it actively. The professors are qualified, there a few that can be sub par but you'll quickly notice those who are adequate teachers and who aren't as well as how to adapt and overcome those difficulties of said teacher.

I really loved being a part of the Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa Honors society, but I wish there was more stuff to do around campus like events! With Honors, I did events like rockclimbing, operas, and even a study abroad in India. I also completed several research projects with areas of my interest, which really enhanced my learning experience.
I think this college is a hidden gem at an unbeatable price! With the cost of colleges being off the charts nowadays, I'm surprised everyone planning on a 4-year degree doesn't come here and take all their general studies classes first and then transfer them. Nobody cares where an Engineer took English 101 or Economics. In addition, the professors here rival any around and some of them also teach at the "much more expensive" colleges in the area. It is a fantastic place!
