I have to brag a bit becasue this is where I went for Interior Design grad school. It wasn't the easiest year of my life so I was happy to see that in the least, I got a great education. Sorry for my bragging but I didn't know who to share this with. This really affects my life in no way since I already have a good job but maybe gives some comfort as I write those huge student loan checks- it was worth the money.... I think.
