"I came to visit the campus and seeing the Automotive Building for the first time astonished me! The building is amazing with all of the glass, sitting atop the hill that overlooks the campus and the village. Additionally inside the building the classrooms and the labs had cut-a-ways of engines and partially disassembled vehicles that really got my interest at the time."
