Academics Rating

With regards to class sizes, I recall it being about 15 or 20 students depending on the class. For the most part, the classrooms were conducive to learning and the instructors followed the college's policy to provide students with appropriate assignments and workload. I think that incoming freshmen would easily adapt to the workload and atmosphere of each classroom depending on the instructor's teaching style.

Academics Rating

Classes are large, programs are hit or miss. It depends on what your major is; Gen. Eds are HUGE classes!
