Academics Rating

The classes and programs are up to par. The professors so far seem knowledgeable. I enjoy my instructors and professors, as they are intelligent and pay attention to detail. The instructors take the time to listen if someone has a question or needs help with something. The class size is about like any other class that I have attended at the community colleges in the past, the work load is doable, yet challenging.
