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

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.
