I think that this school is great. From the diversity to how outgoing they are. Not only that but they have a beautiful campus. The one thing I wish could change is the class size for the psychology program.

It's a great school with a great amount of helpful teachers, regardless of the couple few that aren't particularly everyone's favorite.

Potential employers recognize the value of a degree from my school, we receive quality education and our school's career services help students land internships that they are interested in.
