The academics were challenging, but not hard enough to fail. They were practical! I worked part-time and it was nice seeing how my education was impacting my work performance.

It was a great experience. I would highly recommend! Each member of the faculty truly care about your experience and want you to succeed. Even going part-time, they invested in my success.
I am from Bowling Green and live right up the street from the university. As the city has grown so has the campus and I have seen it grow over the past couple of years. I love the atmosphere that is given off as you walk through campus. It gives off a lovable, enjoyable, at-home feel. The professors are very engaged at helping you on assignments and giving regular feedback on everything. I'm really enjoying my time here and believe that I will continue to enjoy it on into graduation.
