J******n from Dallas

The professors were pretty good, but other than that I wouldn?t recommend. I had major dorm problems all year that were never fixed properly, REALLY conservative and everything was just forced especially religious beliefs that was a little overboard. Most of the people were nice, but it was like living in a bubble and everyone was walking on eggshells. The best way to describe it was church camp on steroids. Not worth the money at all. Chapel is annoying and an inconvenience as well. Decent, safe campus, but not much else honestly. Literally nothing to do around campus and it?s really dull and boring. Again, not worth the student debt.
