Great for me, since I was not college prepared. You are a name not a student # with faculty. Professors are available to offer assistance. Has a good rep. as preparing student for a career in teaching.
For many in state students that have aspirations to go to college but have not stayed away from home alot in their lives, this remote location allows students to grow in their independance less aggressively in that many travel home for the weekend. This suitcase college is good to prepare one for the big university school scene.
