Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

It is a very diversified campus that is great for local students. I work full time but the schedule of classes allow me to fit a couple of classes into my already packed schedule. They have great facilities and great technology that help you learn with industry current items. I enjoy my time here every time I have a class.
