Academics Rating

At times the course work can be challenging, but everyone is willing to help. In addition they have many helpful services on campus, for example the writing center. The work load can really vary from professor to professor. But, again, all of the professors are extremely willing to help you succeed if you put in the effort. The class sizes are usually relatively small, they range between twenty to thirty five students per class. This makes it easier to connect with the professor and ask questions through out the class. Participation is strongly encouraged in most classes.
