    There are new and renovated computer labs, dorms, classrooms, and dining halls. The student center and library are the 2 main centers of campus. Dorms are not huge but very usable. Classrooms are varied - some large lecture-hall, some small discussion, some labs.

    Some of the dorms are quite old, but everything is kept up. There are some beautiful new dorms. Plenty of computer labs for student use. Classrooms are similar to the dorms, some older but still nice.
