Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

For all listening, please do not waste your time at this school if contemplating enrolling in diesel program. professors simply do not care to teach, let alone show up for class; furthermore, there is plenty of drug use all over the school. on top of it almost all of the teaching equipment is from the 90's. I can guarentee you will be more satisfied at any other institution.
