“…there is a lot of hands-on learning”

I like the university.... I enjoy the program because there is a lot of hands on learning through tutorials and the material is interesting.

“…I like how there are several options in scheduling our weekly tutorials…”

I like how organized the system they use to give us material to learn on our own and I like how there are several options in scheduling our weekly tutorials I dislike the campus that we are at, the cumberland campus does not compare to the main campus in camperdown. the facilities are kept a lot cleaner, the libraries are open later and there are many food options on the camperdown campus. Aside from the cafeteria on cumberland campus there are no other food options and the the cafeteria closes around 3:30pm
