Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

Some classes here are very small and some are very large. Ive found them to usually be one or the other and never right in the middle. I have loved all of my professors here so far, classes are hard but in the end you really do feel prepared to move forward. Class time is never wasted on pointless teacher or student stories, short class time makes for better productivity and learning. Central is a wonderful school workload might be heavy in some classes but it is manageable.

Academics Rating

The classes are pretty good. There's work, but that's how college is. All of the professors I've had so far have been understanding, laid back, and willing to help out the students. I enjoy the smaller classroom sizes compared to the auditorium classes, only because I can learn better that way.
