    Featured Review: Sophomore says I like most of my professors. There is a few who have been teaching for many years and get away with not wanting to help students if they don’t want to. No college is perfect, this one is okay.Rate my professor website is helpful but sometimes staying in contact with professors is the best route to go if you want to succeed. I’ve had two bad encounters with professors so far.Financial Aid is hard to reach, staff sometimes isn’t available, Advisors are difficult to meet with and don’t help that much, but it is a good college to attend. Highly recommend trying it out!.
