Print Journalism, Class of 2010

Dorms are getting better, they used to be poor. Computer labs were top of the line. Dining hall was mediocre, most people don't eat there. Classrooms are in typical city buildings and not historical.

Dancing and art for sure, also the school newspaper and film. They're not varied - mostly for creative people. Hardly any sports/athletic themed things
