Comment

The network at KSC isn't limited to 200 users, that's just silly. This schools average, dubbed "Kinda Sotra College" for its laid back nature. You can have an extra four years of high school or you can delve in to academia, your choice. Its a good B+ school. Res Halls are half and half, some contemporary some kind of old. Housing isnt guaranteed for four years any more, as the demand is rising. posted Oct 28th, 2010 9:07 pm
