What impressed you positively?

"Who doesn't LOVE Las Vegas?!! Everything is brand, spankin' new and the weather was great in March. The students were really happy and the facilities are great. They're going to have a gym and workout room done for this fall's students, so that will be great. Did I mention that I LOVE Las Vegas? :-)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
