As a transfer student, I found this college not only a good place to transfer to, but superior in every way from the previous college I went to! The campus feels more inviting and open, settled in a safe environment, with great classes and professors, and getting the best education for a fair cost! Though the dorms and food are fine, they could be better, and if you're someone that likes to party, then don't be too impressed, since you either gotta go off campus, or be in some sort of academic club or nerd group to party. Overall, it's a must choose for anyone going into college!

The OK Hall dorms are small, but there's a really nice amount of storage. Not many shelves though. We had our coffee maker on a shelf on the microwave on the mini fridge and it was kinda hard to work around. They don't seem to do maintenance unless it's required. If you cover any holes with duct tape, take it off at the end of the year. Also you have to clean your dorms when you move out, so be prepared to finally deal with that stain on the floor you've been ignoring for a semester. 6/10 for the rooms.

Bathrooms: The showers were full once during my entire year living there. Soap/paper towels sometimes absent. The bathrooms don't get cleaned on the weekends, so if someone demolishes a toilet it stays that way until Monday. Definitely need shower shoes too. 5/10 for the bathrooms.

The resident advisors are LOVELY. They are kind and organize little events, and sometime they put out cookies or donuts or almond-bark covered popcorn. 10/10 for the RAs.

Also, the smoke alarms are sensitive. It takes a month before the newbies figure out how to keep from setting them off. Be prepared to run down the stairs at midnight in your bathrobe.

Great online RN-BSN Program! Professors were always readily available for questions and assistance. It was a very positive experience towards the future of my career.
