Academics Rating

My professors are some younger some older, but all are very nice and helpful. They have lots of office hours to help students on one on one which can be very helpful. The classes are medium size from 15 to 50 students in what ever class you might be in. The workload I recieve isn't too hard, its acceptable for transitioning into college from high school.
