    Good communication with staff. Online classes and other ways to take classes other than sitting in a classroom make it simple. Area is close to everything you may need and very safe. I wish there were more intramural options for students or other activities offered for health improvement. So far everyone had been very helpful, just beginning school here. It's a small school so individual help should be available. Im not staying on campus but taking online courses so no real experience on the campus life in that aspect. Classes begin for me in two weeks, so far everything has been fairly easy. Campus was a but confusing but after visiting and walking it, figured it out quickly as it's small.

    Small class sizes make it easier to know your professor and ask for help! However, the campus is not very diverse and the food is not great. It's an average school. A cheap costing school with an average education.
    The online Computer Infomation Systems program is excellent! Everything is online and it is accredited. The faculty are very knowledgeable and approachable. The certificate programs are particularly excellent.
