It is a design oriented school. The environment is very academically driven. There are also a lot of commuters, making campus life quite uneventful and boring.

BArch, Class of 2010

At the time I was enrolled, the facilities were quite up to date. They were not progressive, but I would not consider them too outdated. Enrollment began to increase, but the facilities did not enlarge, making many resources scarce.
