I LOVE THE COLLEGE LIFE, AND DORM .. THEY NEED TO IMPROVE THE FOOD SELECTION IN THE CAFE.. I THINK A MORE HEALTHIER SELECTION WILL BE GOOD .. EVERYTHING BE SO FATTY, AND MAKES YOU FEEL TIRED WALKING TO THE CLASSES DURING THE DAY..
The professors are very professional and are always willing to help. Information concerning what is expected for assignments are very detailed.
