I have been going to this school since high school because I wanted to get ahead in my college education and I'm only 19 and will be graduating from nursing in just a year! Frontier has helped made this possible by supporting and communicating with me throughout the past 3 years of taking classes here. The staff are helpful, the professors care about the students, and the atmosphere is great for learning.

The College is usually a fun experience. The professors are nice and usually have fun with their class. As for my experience as a whole, I had some problems. I was passed around from advisor to another. Then the advisor I had, did a good job, until I decided to switch the University that I wanted to go to. Four months after applying, I learned that I did not have a class that was required to get into the business school and was rejected, keep in mind that this was in the middle of April, so the choices for other colleges were already limited. The classes are overly easy and their sports scene is ridiculous, mainly how they built a field that does not drain and give too many scholarships out, driving up the price for the rest of the students. It may be fun to be in class, but I would not recommend going here unless you want to put up with some bad advisers and faculty.
I really like the small classes, and the campus is really close together for the most part, and the attendance cost is pretty cheap.
