mostly up to date. the dorms look like prison cells, most of the classrooms are nice, some renovations could be done in some buildings. I've never been in the dining hall but the food at the student center is good. Lots of restaurant choices to choose from.

Computer labs were sufficient, dorms were too small, only lived there one year before moving into an apartment, dining halls were ok in regards to food, not too many healthy options and the taste wasn't great unless you went to a chain restaurant on campus.
