What impressed you positively?

"The students were enthusiastic, but honest. The facilities were impressive, and I particularily like the study halls which have study rooms with plenty of room and a computer. The apartments located nearby (which they gave me a tour) were impressive as well (they had an excersise room, study hall, and the rooms were cute)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The campus appears to be in a somewhat bad part of the neighbor hood; however, if you play it smart, I don't feel it'll be much of an issue.
