From the biased standpoint of a biology major, I will admit that the coursework can often be dense (especially during midterms and finals weeks). However, it is never too much to handle. In relation to my experience as a student, the class sizes are average, excluding a few 100+ student lectures. The professors, for the most part, are very knowledgable and cooperative; as with any college, though, there is your fair share of pompous "know-it-alls". The difficulty of classes greatly depends on the student's aptitude and major.

Since this is my first year all I can honestly say is that I am pleased with my schedule and my advisor explained what would be best for my individual goal. Even though I was ready to start in some of my dance classes my advisor told me to get all of my math/english ect out of the way first. I am so excited about starting my future.
