Beautiful campus. Great art work on exhibit. Ollie University for Seniors located on site. Great place to attend college. All cultures welcome. Good baseball team!!! I like to go on campus and visit the pottery rooms on the weekend when student are doing their projects. Beautiful Japanese Garden open certain hours. Very worth while visiting.

This is a beautiful university in a wonderful location. The access to the university is very easy. The only drawback is limited parking. Other than that it is great.

It's got a beautiful theater, Carpenter Hall for big events, shows and the gym is absolutely state of the art. Best gym I have ever seen, climbing wall, squash courts, on and on.

There is a fantastic new molecular biology building, and it houses all of the other sciences, but most of the people on campus weren't friendly and it's the sort of school where the students will be numbers and will get lost in the shuffle.
