WHAT I LIKED

It was a great educational institution with a lot of qualified faculty. There's a reason I choose to return there for grad school. As far as value goes, it's a low cost for a high return. The dorms and the dining halls need improvement, but that's a very small part of the ultimate great experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dorms and dining halls had much to be desired. Nearly everything else was great. But the limited options and high expense for little payoff weren't very good.

WHAT I LIKED

I wouldn’t recommend the online course version unless it’s a must. The best courses to take is in person.

Online courses are not consistent.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED
