    They provide opportunities to do internships in the community, host fairs that focus on employment, they have a career services department, and there are student organizations on campus that help with career/real world opportunity.

    We do not have your typical student body. Most of our students are considered nontraditional. That is something I liked about this school. We also have a lot of international students which is wonderful because it brings more culture and diversity to our school.

    It was a small school. The culture allowed students in each department to get to know one another.

    The facilities are top notch. There is only one set of dorms that I felt were quite old, but they are building brand new dorm rooms so perhaps those older ones will not need to be used anymore. The computer labs were great and they were all over campus. There was always one nearby. There is only one dining hall, but I believe they are adding on another one once the new building is done.

    The computer labs were good. The dorms were decent. The dining halls need better food.

    The most popular organization at our school is a Bod Squad. A lot of the student body participates in it. There is a lot of school spirit and pride at my school.

    Christian Challenge was the most unique and popular group on campus I knew about.
