I was kicked out because they tried to say my high school diploma was fake because I was homeschooled and to not step foot back on the property. They ruined my reputation up there and I will never ever recommend it to anyone at all. Worst college ever!!!!!!

Overall Rating:

While the staff is generally pleasant, the college itself I awful! They are focused on keeping up enrollment but not considerate of individual students' needs. Classrooms and instructors are all awesome, admissions reps are great - but this is NOT a place I will ever return to.

Overall Rating:

Very nice and helpful staff, the instructors seem very educated in any of the questions arose. You will find your way to what you need by simply talking to the very hospitable people. Parking lots around segments/additions of the college. Also primary parking lot at the headquarters building is small but full functional and easy to notice.
