My adviser is amazing. Some of them were incredibly frustrating and couldn't listen to what you were saying. The Collat School of Business sends out bi-weekly emails about scholarship and internship opportunities that are accessible for most students. We do have exclusive recruitment do to the prestige of many of our programs.

I love the vibrant and busy atmosphere. We are located in the central downtown area, so there is always something going on at a local arena, restaurant, or other small venue. We have many clubs for a student with all sorts of interest. My only concern is the rising crime rate and the restriction of students being able to carry.
