Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

I think the class sizes are excellent. Most class sizes are relatively small, which is great, because that enhances your learning experience. There are some lecture halls that are quite large, but otherwise, I've never been in a class that exceeded 20 students. The workload can be stressful at times, but it's never too much to handle. There are many class and major options for students.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Academics Rating

The professors, classes and programs all seem very good. They are challenging but inspiring as to not just give students easy grades but instead inspire them to persevere and thrive in more challenging classes. Unfortunately, the math classes are largely taught by grad students who do not naturally speak English which makes the classes harder to understand and do well in.
