The classes tend to be rather crowded towards the beginning of every semester. For the most part, professors are very easy to reach as they provide office hours for any questions one may have. I specifically loved their business department in which the professors were very helpful. Lynn Krausse is a great accounting teacher for any business majors who may need to take such course.

Again I haven't explored a lot yet but out of the four professers I had so far only one has been hard to learn from. Programs I've only used one,the tutoring,It's help me tons. The workload is what you'd expect heavy and hard paced. classes are a little small but they so the job.
