I loved the professors at the school and manly of the classes I got to take! There were great classes taught by people who were very enthusiastic about the subject matters they covered. I always felt like my teachers took notice of me and cared about me. They made themselves available to students, always offering us time to see them during their office hours. The students there are also very nice. I become friends with many of my classmates after just one semester. They understand the situation many students are in, and they are helpful while also holding us accountable, because they know what we are capable off and encourage us to try harder and harder.
