Semesters are cut in 1/2 - having 2 - 7 week sessions, working, being a parent is awful. Difficult to retain what you are suppose to learn with this pace. For example, a 3 credit hour A&P fused class requires 2 days spent in the lab for 3 hours each week, 1 hour in the testing center a week, in addition to all the online book work for the course.

Academics Rating

I have attended classes at three different campuses. I like the intimate environment, and small class sizes at Palmer and Berkeley campuses. The main campus is wonderful too, but the class size tends to be a bit larger. The professors are great no matter where you go. The workload is challenging, especially during the summer semesters, but the professors make it easy to follow.
