What impressed you positively?

"The library seems new, meanwhile the gross labs are brand-new (used for the first time last semester). It is a state school so it is inexpensive; after your first year an out-of-stater can apply for residency and pay in-state-tuition. The curriculum for first years is awesome- only 2-3 classes at a time. Also, the commute from anywhere you live on campus is very quick. It is a very compact campus." Report Response
