    Classrooms are very personal and enclosed, while the lecture halls are very large and spacious. The dorms are clean neat, and a little small only good if you get along with your roommate. The dining halls are also spacious and large, plenty room and options for seating. There are several different computer labs, and they too are enough for plenty students to come in and work on assignments.
