I did not think that I would love this school as much as I do. It is bigger than a 2 year school, but it is not too big that it is overwhelming. Rather than being in a class with 400 people, you are in much smaller classes and the professors really care to get to know you. There are so many resources available to the students that many of the students use on a regular basis. Housing, recreational, dining, and student activities are many of the things that make this school so great. Falcons up!

I'm having a great time here. There are plenty of events to keep students from getting stressed out, staff here is so nice and helpful, and they truly do care about the wellbeing of their students. The campus is always really clean and there are safety buttons everywhere. The teachers are pretty helpful and are always willing to work with you when something happens in your life and you are unable to do as task. The school offers so many health related services to students, which is great. Everyone is always in the loop with what events are happening, or if something changes as the staff sends out emails to the whole school every week with new updates and things we need to know. Overall, the school is actually really great.
Many professors come from high rated Texas public universities so the academics are surprisingly strong. While off campus can be a bit strange and frightening at times, on campus people are just what you'd expect from west Texas: kind, welcoming, and fairly joyful. The food is okay, many restaurants and grocery stores across the street from campus. The school is fairly small and you will pass many familiar faces every day as a result. It is just big enough to find others similar to you in backgrounds, interests, or what have you. It is reasonably affordable and is a good starting place for most degrees. I have had lots of fun thus far.
