Academics Rating

I heard the class size is small compared to other schools. I also will be in a class of 32 students for my nursing program. My program will also have a harder workload. The professors in my program are new.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2009

Academics Rating

As a Kinesiology student, our class sizes were relatively small. The largest class I was in was 35 students. There were a lot of pro's having the small class sizes. We had much more interaction with the professors. Many of the professors would be able to get to know you and your interests and they would do their best to teach us material that we wanted to learn about or made it relevant to the careers we wanted to pursue. The workload was pretty average, but that can be subjective depending on learning ability and work ethic.
