Academics Rating

I was a Journalism major and wish the Journalism/Communications program were a little bit stronger, but my professors were great and I feel I benefitted greatly from the smaller class sizes especially within my major. The workload was never overwhelming and I always felt like I could call upon any of my professors for extra help outside of class.

Academics Rating

This school prepares you for the real world. They do not baby you here, as in other universities. More often than not, there is no attendance grade. It's your choice to go to class, just like it's your choice to go to work. The university is very helpful when it comes to career advice as well. There are plenty of opportunities for entry level jobs and internships. You just have to have enough gumption to take advantage of all the opportunities. It's all what you make it. And I am proud to call myself a terp!
