My review

The Good:

The student experience! The diverse student population and plethora of groups and activities on campus made my college journey incredibly rich and fulfilling.

The Bad:

At the time, it was the facilities. As a communication major, our buildings were old and equipment was incredibly outdated.

Would I do it again?

Yes, The price can't be beat. I met some of the best people I will ever meet while there. I got to take classes I will never have the opportunity to take. I had the best time of my life.
