Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

The majority of my classes have been around 20-50 people, with only a few large lecture classes over 200 people. The professors tend to go above and beyond to assist the students that need it. They will meet with you during office hours, or work with you on scheduling a time to meet outside of their normal office hours. Some of the hardest classes have Action Center tutoring, which allows for extra help from the professors and/or the TAs for the classes. The workload for the upper division classes tends to be fairly heavy, but it depends on what the class is. My psychology classes were very reading-heavy, whereas physics had practice problems to do every week. It really depends on your major. My favorite class so far has also been my hardest: Intro to Human Anatomy with Dr. Gordon. She is, to quote her, "fabulous."


Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

My biggest class is my history lecture class and quiet frequently am surprised myself because that is not what I expected, with that being said the rest of my classes are from 15-20 students. Am really happy about that because we get to have a closer relationship with our professor and instructor which is not common and the huge lecture course. My biggest problems are studying and time management you have to be able to manage your time whether it is going to eat lunch or hanging with your friends. The work is challenging but this is college, also though with challenging work there comes people and organization that are willing to help.
