What are your general comments?

"Western U is an established school that is still trying to be innovative and definitely emphasizes a lot of pumping out successful pharmacist. The surrounding area is slightly "ghetto" and not aesthetically appealing. There seems to be many apartments that are super close to the school, basically across the street. Many homeless people in the area. The nicest thing near the school was the Starbucks but you still needed a passcode to use the restroom, which is shocking to me..." Report Response
