So far so good, this is an amazing campus. I really enjoy the campus and the library. I love the library, its such a great place to do homework and study! My first semester was good with an exception of a class. Before registering for a class check on the professors, i got a professor who wasn't all that great at teaching, she wasn't clear with her lessons! I learned my lesson.

The level of experience brought to my major by the various instructors is second to none. Our facilities and practice equipment Are high tech and well maintained.
The college frequently has on campus events providing free food to students, extensive information about all college sponsored and related programs, campus clubs, sports programs, and volunteer opportunities. All supporting/administrative staff that I have encountered have been knowledgeable and helpful.

It would be nice if there were more food options on campus than the daily food trucks and a few vending machines. And despite the fact that there is a Starbucks across the street, it's extremely irritating that there is no coffee available on campus. College students live on coffee.
I loved the diversity of classes it offers! There so much to take and it has a wide range of classes to choose from. I just don't quite like parking, it's always so hard to find parking to have to get there earlier for my classes. However, I love all my professors, they're great, helpful and completely understanding!
