Academics Rating

The professors are always willing to help you after hours if there's something you're not understanding. With my current schedule, I have plenty of time to study and get my assignments finished. The classes aren't too big nor too small. The resources are endless when it comes to help outside of the classroom. The library is huge and there's a place where I can have someone check my assignments. There's even a recording studio on campus!

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

All of my classes have been excellent so far. My professors all have time to meet outside of class if we need help. The workload has been pretty standard and manageable. None of my classes have been overly gigantic either, so that is nice! The professors all seem to genuinely want us to do well and I really appreciate that.
