Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Pros • Lots of fun things to do • Great events • Great place to make friendsCons • Deplorable Staff • Preposterous Rules like gotta have name tag out at all times (Can't even take out your wallet and show it to them...) • Bad shower heads • Bad Internet Service (You can't use any other internet provider except what's on their flyers) • Food is not Culinary • Atrocious Laundry Machine's • Bad TransportationIf you wanna survive in this environment I'd follow these steps• Buy a Portable Washer - Washer and Dryer costs $1.00-1.25 ea, a Portable Washer would help budget your money • Buy a humidifier - Dorm Room managers always advise you dust off everything, including your windows, a humidifier will diminish that chore • Get a 2-door Compact Fridge/Freezer - If you love your frozen goods then you're gonna need a bigger freezer and not those compact fridges with those small freezers that is enough to fit one Ice tray, no. • Wait till the very last sec on a Microwave - They always have a microwave downstairs and theres no telling whether your Roommate will come with one of his own. • Look into a Portable Hotspot or buy off a dorm mates wifi (Or you could look at the flyer board) • Buy Bottled water - I never trust their filtration system which is why I get lots of water bottles from Walmart down by Oaks crossing • Buy waterproof Sandals or Flip Flops - Trust me you don't wanna go walking barefoot on their floors especially in the showers. • Build Associations - You're not gonna make it solo-dolo, make friends with those who have the same career as you. and last but not least • GET A DRIVERS LICENSE - It becomes tiring laying your butt in the dorm room stuck in a boondocks environment, you wanna get out and go places but you cannot do that with their transportation. Unless you have friends with a license you're just gonna be stuck waiting to go to a Walmart and come back.Trust me its not easy being far away from home where you're most use to things but with my method you'll just about make it

It’s beautiful out here. The college is right on the lake with a beautiful nine hole disc golf course. It’s a nice place to get out of the car and take a walk.
