Please do not go to this school. They do not care about their student body AT ALL! When I first attended they asked the student body to vote if they would like to "PAY" for a football team. More than 70% of students did not want to pay an extra fee of almost $200 dollars per student to pay for it. Well right after I graduated they went through with ti anyway. Now students are paying $175 dollar student fee that is going to go towards a football team instead of fixing the buildings that have cracks going through the entire building, the asbestos in buildings, the horrible dome conditions that students do sports in (the ceiling is falling apart) also the parking situation where students are having to park all the way over at Krogers and walk to school because they do no have enough parking for students who commute. Their teachers do not have good reputations and do not care about you. (If you find one that does it is a miracle please share so future students can enroll in their class). Their good teachers and soon weeded out because they make the rest of the teachers look bad and if you are a "TRANSFER" student be prepared to take all your remedial again because they do not accept ANYTHING that they say you will. They do not tell their student that you will not get your Diploma if you do not take this strange EXIT EXAM that is a joke and should not keep students from collecting their Diplomas (literally I went into a room and they told me to write a letter to the president of the school on how I believe they could fix their program that was it). I have friends who graduated and were not told by their advisers or the graduate office that they needed to take this ridiculous exit exam in order to get a diploma. They were not told this until they moved all the way to the west coast and started a nice job. When they called the school to mail their diploma they refused because they had not participated in this EXIT EXAM. Good luck on and enjoy the donated bell tower that they spend more upkeep on than their buildings that are falling apart. Also I would be cautious about the elevators some of them get stuck. Good luck and safe journey if you intend to go to this school.
