It's an Alright School – I would definatly pick this school again,its very conveniant for me and so far fasfa has helped me pay for the whole first semester (im a freshaman). I like that student life can run so smoothly, although there aren't much oraginazitions to join. Its also a little upsetting to know that there is no campus life, but you can get an apartment close to school. if you apply. Overall I've enjoyed it and its been very helpful and benificial
There are I think three parking lots around school. One of the parking is very close to school but you must pay four dollars everytime you park there. The Shea Parking lot is very big, its a little bit away from the school but there are always shuttle buses available to take you to school. If you have a parking permit, you can park in it whenever. The other parking lot is also close to school but it is run by parking meters
My school is located Downtown and although there is a lot of historical value in many of the buildings downtown, there is a problem with the high rate of crime and homeless people that are also downtown. I once heard a saying on the radio : "If you live downtown you're either really rich, or a hobo". It is true. The first day of school, when classes where over, my sister and I decided to take a trip downtown and walk around to see what was around us. It had many high class resturants but they all seemed too expensive to go in but there was also a lot of homeless people walking around. But downtown isn't so bad. If you go by the museum district, there is a lot of attractions there like the museaum themselves, or the park, or the zoo.
