Overall Rating:

It's a good starting school but extremely disorganized with idiots for employees. Dr Apple or apfel is a complete and total moron. She is so ungodly useless. She is extremely disorganized no wonder all of the students hate her. She wouldn't shake our hands because she said that's how germs are spread. Get rid of this delusional troll! She made an appointment for 12 and then when we got there said it was for 4pm. Um hello!? This school is so DISORGANIZED. If you're willing to put up with complete chaos for two years then go here. This school was better back in the day now it's a hell hole.The librarians are nice and some of the professors and the security officers are really nice but that's about it.

It's not the best. I went here for half of a semester and i'm at a much better school now. The school is boring, not lively, the counselors aren't very helpful. Food is horrible. Students aren't very sociable and just a boring school. Professors teach biased political things in classes that shouldn't be for that subject. It's alright as a school but to be honest its not that cool
