Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

I am currently enrolled as a business student so my classes are mostly business focused. The classes are interesting and the professors are very good most of the time. The workload is not bad at all, but time management is a must. Class size is also not too overwhelming for a large school. The general classes such as economics are huge, but most of my other classes have under 50 students.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

Some classes have lectures with a large number of students, which make it harder to keep up with the material and make it easier to fall behind. Take advantage of the online study guides and lecture notes from friends to help understand the material better.
