    I went to school after work ...so it was at night and most of the students worked during the day. They were friendly and ambitious. The student body was very diverse ... people from different backgrounds and cultures.

    The dining hall was adequate, I really did not eat there much. The computer labs I am sure have changed since I graduated almost 20 years ago...but at the time they were very well equipped. I never saw the dorms. The classrooms varied depending on the class and seemed well equiped and set up well.

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?

Though the programs offer flexibility since there are not set classroom meetings, hard deadlines and due dates move cohorts along at a similar pace.
