As I said before, this school is for working professionals, and people who are seeking to get their education in a fast track format. If you would like to enjoy parks, meal, you are welcome to explore the city that offers so much. You will be surrounded with people who are experienced (ex., peers), and who can advise, put you in the right direction, or at least give you a picture how it is to be in certain fields of work in real life. Staff is friendly, professors are experienced. Overall, I think I had a very good and satisfying experience there. Right after graduation I was offered an internship, and a full-time job a few months into my internship.

The things that I would change is following:

1. More scholarship opportunities

2. Career advisory events should be for everyone, not only for people who have certain GPA. I was invited to those events, but i felt sad that some of my peers were not. I am sure they had some things planned for them too, but I believe there should not be any discrimination.

3. Accounting students are not invited to Tax Career events, and vice versa. The management should understand that some accounting students are actually interested in working as tax professionals. But that was not the case there. Some students sneaked into those career events where they wanted to try their luck, I heard.
After going back to school from a 7 year hiatus, I was nervous and worried that I won't be able to perform at my highest degree. Although after adjusting to school life and working with the programs the university offers, I have been able to function and perform at my best.
