For the most part, the staff is very sweet and caring about yourself and your education. The food is amazing, every day it's something different and it never disappoints. Although, the campus is EXTREMELY small and parking is frustrating.

I went here my first semester of my freshman year of college in the aviation program. I was treated unfairly by one of the professors. There are better schools that cost less. They pitch you a "community" and "family", but that's not how it is unless your in some type of sport. They act all nice when they give you a tour of the school but I overheard some people who gave the tour talking to each other saying how they can't wait for the tours to be over because the people are annoying. Save your money and go elsewhere.
The support of the teams are a school-wide event. Everyone loves to go to Basketball, Volleyball, and Baseball games!
