  • Had the pleasure of taking courses at the University on a number of occasions. Seems like an easy campus to get around and has a lot to offer on and in around the area. Rides up Centre and the downtown core (market area) are all walking distances.
  • Confusing campus with everything French first or French only so it's hard to know where you are going. If you speak French this place is for you.
  • The university arranges programs and events regularly to keep things lively here.
