    varied greatly. Some classrooms had the most up-to-date technology, others had none or things that didn't work well.

    4 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Management Information Systems, Class of 2013

    Computer labs are few and far between. They were centralized to the library and securing a seat or study space is challenging. Classrooms are mostly dated, but still work for most things. Dining halls a newer and serve decent food, but the hours are limited.
