Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1998

Academics Rating

The classrooms were modern and the professors were not only good at their job, but they were called to teach. For the most part, the work load was manageable, but there were always long nights of studying for mid terms and finals. Most of the classes were on the smaller size, with the exception of the core classes that were large auditorium seating style. My counselor/adviser always made himself available and I trusted his advice. My professors and business school advisers definitely set me up for post-graduation success!
