It's a good university. Its Computer Science has very special emphasis area that not many schools teach. I like its location. It's quiet and there is not a large population here. One thing I don't like is it's hard for me to find a position here.

Wonderful opportunities for each student, both for the profession but also for personal growth. Diversity found among the students, going from background and nationality to interests the students show. Lots of support from faculty which provides a good college experience

I like my graduate program. It's more that what I had expected by far but exactly what I need. I do wish that campus dinning had more options than Subway and the dinning hall.
