    About 1/2 commuter, 1/2 on campus. Over 10% are in online only curriculum. There have been issues with harassment and a pretty worthless university president who has since cut and run. There's a lot of damage control going on now.

Facilities

What letter grade would you give the facilities at your school.

3.75 Based on 16 Reviews
  • Alumni
    MBA, Class of 1993

    There are some buildings that are from the 50's and 60's, and haven't been updated. Not good. Library is co-run by city library system, and the city and university management seem to fight a lot about turf. Computer labs okay to good. Network is abysmal--lots of new Cisco equipment, but no one trained to administer.
