  • Went here. Paid cash. Graduated with business degree. My honest opinion 1 star on a good day. If you can invest the money it cost to go here you'd be a multi-millionaire way before you will ever make that kind of money after graduating. If I could do it over again I'd go to CU, CSU or UNC.
  • Don't go out at night at all or at least alone stay away from parties stay armed lock your doors.. but excellent place for education
