What impressed you positively?

"The school campus is absolutely awesome. Very high tech. Its just an old ware house turned completely around. Its one story, but very big. The labs have 6 plasma flat screens hanging from the ceiling along with floor to ceiling projectors... the professors can therefore work at their table and have the camera on what they're doing so you can see it from your seat. The rest of the school is completely wireless, they have the new STAN system working, and the school is just very modern looking and colorful inside." Report Response
