It is good for students that have grown up in the area. 90% of the students are commuters. The location is in the middle of nowhere, there is no public transportation. My son likes the teachers which is the saving point of the campus. Athletics is poor, there is no social life, the event coordinator does an amazingly poor job of organizing anything. There is nothing to do on campus, everything is far away and you are stuck inside the dorm if you don't have a car. They should get a refund for the activities fees because the money is being paid for practically nothing. The events coordinator took 18 year old boys and girls to watch a Spongebob Broadway show, I think that says it all. She talked big about organizing many things, trips to the amusement parks. After the first semester now we know it was all talk. My son cannot wait to get out of there after the second year and move to the main campus.
