Overall Rating:

The international department of this college is so rude and mean. I got sick in between my semester. And I was an International student. I went to the hospital and they gave me a letter to show that this patient is so sick. I was suffering from chicken pox at that time. And the college department said we cannot allow u to withdraw the classes because u r an international student. This was so mean. And the lady Robin Raecker said "we will kick u out, if u miss classes." I hate this college and I strongly recommend that International students should not apply in this college because international department is not good.
