  • Great university!! The Friendliness and helpfulness of its faculty members creates a great learning environment for students. I love the school's diversity, its nice campus environment, and the different associations/clubs you can be part of!
  • Very nice school. The best school of business in area. Parking so impact. Wishing having more parking structures in future. Best place to get degree in town!
  • As a retired law enforcement officer, I would never recommend anyone to send their children to a university that allows "pig art" depicting Police Officers as pigs to be displayed on its walls. You would think a major university would teach students to respect law enforcement officers. This is not sending the right message to students and is a stab in the back to good Police Officers that risk their lives everyday to protect us. I wonder how the university officials who support this would feel if they have an active shooter situation at their college. Very sad! My son will soon be graduating high school and I promise you he will not be applying at this college!
  • Great school, beautiful campus with lots of trees. However, problems with parking! Lots and structures are usually full by 9 or 10 AM, and daily permits are expensive.
  • An even bigger joke than SierraCollege. They aren’t there to teach a craft; it’s just a giant cash grab. Nobody has a smile on their face so you know who’s going to be the worst to deal with. Guess they got stung by too many hornets and now they’re trying to do it to the next guy
