Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2017

Academics Rating

The programs are challenging, informative, and are helping to prepare students for the real world. The professors are all very knowledgeable about their area of study and always willing to help answer questions. The workload is what should be expected of a college education and the class size is a fantastic learning environment. Even the general education courses are relatively small so I do not feel like just another face in the crowd. All of my professors know me by name and that is something that is truly valuable.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

Being a university, all major fields of studies are offered from business, education, to communication and health. Professors care a lot about students and class sizes are small. The workload will push you at points, but overall you'll be learning.
