We do not have your typical student body. Most of our students are considered nontraditional. That is something I liked about this school. We also have a lot of international students which is wonderful because it brings more culture and diversity to our school.

Biology, Class of 2014
The facilities are top notch. There is only one set of dorms that I felt were quite old, but they are building brand new dorm rooms so perhaps those older ones will not need to be used anymore. The computer labs were great and they were all over campus. There was always one nearby. There is only one dining hall, but I believe they are adding on another one once the new building is done.
