Great programs and professors! Small community makes it feel like home. Tons of student activities that will keep you busy and they're a great way to meet new people.
There's Chick-fil-A in the student center, you
can't beat that. The gym is renovated and awesome! It's worth the time to tour the campus. It is beautiful. The advisors are also very knowledgeable and will help you meet your goals. They watch out for you even when you think they're not 😁 My only complaint is parking... Make sure you have some comfortable tennis shoes for all of the walking. They're is help everywhere for you, this school really want you to achieve!

My overall experience with the school was pretty good, although I'm not going to actually be enrolled in the school until the fall of 2020, I found my college visit to be very informative and interesting. One thing I found interesting about this college is that they give you $1000 dollars for graduating on time!
I have had no issues until this year (my third year on campus). I’m right now living in Foster/Knox on campus apartments, and have had a huge issue with bugs. I keep my things clean but have seen roaches, beetles, crickets, and a number of other things in the buiding. All they did to fix it was put down glue traps in my apartment and tell me its an old building with “a bit of a bug problem.” Kinda frustrating considering how much I pay to live here. I don’t recommend living in Foster Knox if you want to live on campus. Great school with great professors, but this makes me want to reconsider where I’m studying.
