Closeness to the downtown industry, making it easier and more manageable to have internships during the school year, amazing program with professors with lots of experience and connections, I like being downtown and not in such a small college town feeling space.
I think that with my major there is a large majority of us that want to go into events and conventions as opposed to tourism and hotel management/ restaurant management and there?s a lot of unnecessary courses that we have to take regarding those. I do understand that they are needed for those who are coming through that are taking another route it just seems like a large majority are taking the events and conventions route. I'd like to see more classes geared towards that.
Great psychology program as well as many opportunities for students to do well. There are many programs and a variety of them. There are so many different things you can do. The city is great for us to do well.
I think it?s a good idea for future students, although many people don't approve of it. I believe that we should be open to new opportunities and t could be very beneficial for future generations.
