What impressed you negatively?

"The campus its self is very unorganized and just left me feeling cluttered and there really weren't any formal presentations for the financial aid, so come with your own information about scholarships, they also don't really have any food places on campus or near by, just a taco truck and a little prepackaged sandwich shop."
