Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2017

Academics Rating

All of my professors were extremely approachable and involved in providing multiple opportunities for students to ask them for help. Office hours were plentiful and their assistance was incredibly helpful. Depending on the class, the classwork could build up to quite a lot along with the class size. But, I thought it was manageable. Also, there was an extensive catalog of classes to choose from- even for people constricted by curriculum requirements.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

It's a tough school but it's doable. Class sizes are good, in the humanities at least. The humanities is a pretty small department so there aren't very many people in the classes. The professors really do care about what they're teaching though.
